SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL







There is a RESIDENTIAL SNOW REMOVAL ORDINANCE (155-29)
to help keep our sidewalks safe for walking during the winter.

Please do not place snow or ice in the roadway.

If you are the owner or the person who takes care of a house, building or lot where there is a sidewalk,
you MUST remove snow for the entire length of the sidewalk within a reasonable amount of time.

Also, sidewalks must be kept clear of ice, or made safe by covering the ice with sand or salt.
If you hire a contractor to remove the snow please advise them of the regulations.

There is a COMMERCIAL AND MULTI-FAMILY SNOW REMOVAL ORDINANCE (155-13) stating
all pedestrian areas and driveways must be cleared of snow within 24 hours after snowfall ceases.

Please do not place garbage or recycling cans on the street to hinder snowplow efforts.
DO NOT put snow or ice onto the road or onto anotherís sidewalk or property. This is not allowed.

If possible, the SFD would like to have all fire hydrants cleared off as soon as possible.
This not only helps the Fire Department, but may save precious time in case of fire in your own home.


PARKING DURING SNOW EMERGENCIES:

The DPW plows our streets to keep you and your fellow travelers safe and to maintain clear access for emergency vehicles.
It would make plowing cleaner and faster if ALL residents could move their vehicles off the roads and park them out of the way.

Our snowplows can then clear your entire street with no problems and no burying of 'parked vehicles'.

We're here to serve you and with your help, we can keep all the roads clean for you.

Also, please remember: PARKING IS PROHIBITED on any street which is posted: NO PARKING WHEN ROAD IS SNOW COVERED.

As inconvenient as it might seem, itís important for all of us to obey this ordinance to help keep our streets safe during inclement weather.

Thank you for your cooperation.
