Snow Plan & Response
Keeping You Safe
Snow plowing is part of the snow removal plan that goes into effect after an accumulation of one inch of snow. No cars are to be parked on this street at this time. The Village also prohibits parking on the street from 2 to 5 a.m., regardless of snow.
All streets first receive two passes down the center of the street by the plow to open access to the neighborhood. After all streets of the Village are plowed through one time, the plow returns to do curb-to-curb scrapes.
It is against Village ordinance to push snow into the street from a driveway or parking lot. Anyone putting snow onto the street runs the risk of potential liability if an accident occurs. Also, residents and plowing services should not stack snow around fire hydrants or on the sidewalks. Please help us keep fire hydrants visible. Do not put your garbage cans or recycling bins in the street. They can interfere with the snowplow and the street sweeper.
During the holiday season and national winter sports events such as the Super Bowl, when residents entertain at their homes, please encourage your guests to park on one side of your street in case of snow. This will help open pathways for plows until the cars can be removed from the street.
