SIDEWALK CLEANING – For the safety of our residents please care for your sidewalks. The owner or occupant of any premises abutting a sidewalk shall clear away all snow, ice, dirt or other obstruction from sidewalks situated on land adjoining the property owned or occupied by them within FORTY-EIGHT (48) HOURS after the time such snow, ice, dirt or other obstruction was deposited or formed on the sidewalk
WINTER GUIDELINES – If the snow has does arrive we ask that the residents of the village take some proactive steps to help our Public Works department clear the snow more efficiently. Your cooperation is appreciated.
• Whenever possible, park your vehicles off the roadway to allow for the plows to clear as much snow as possible, especially in the cul-de-sacs as vehicles make it difficult to maneuver snow removal equipment
• Ensure that no vehicles are left on the street for more than 72 hours, as they could be towed, and it impedes the snow removal process
• Try to shovel as much snow from your sidewalk onto your lawn as possible.
