How can I help during snow plowing?

Let’s work together to ensure a safe, successful snow removal season! When snow is on the roads, please:

  • Do not park on roads or culs-de-sac.
  • Ensure your mailbox does not extend over the edge of the road.
  • Shovel your driveway AFTER the snow plow clears your road.
  • Do not shovel your snow into the road.
  • Remove portable basketball hoops or other equipment that is blocking the road or hanging into the road.
  • Clear a 3-foot diameter around fire hydrants, and shovel a path between the hydrant and street.
