Tips to Remember During a Snow Event

Tips to Remember During a Snow Event
Posted on 12/14/2018
To help the public works department keep roads safe and clear of snow, take these simple but important steps:
* Remove your vehicle from the road during a snow emergency, which is declared if there is over two inches of snow on the ground. Your vehicle may be towed if it is parked in the street. 
* Shovel snow from your driveway or sidewalk onto your front yard, not the street.
* Shovel your sidewalk within 18 hours after the last snowflake falls. If you can't cut through the actual sidewalk, a two-foot wide path on the adjacent grass is permissible. 
* Pile snow to the right of your driveway when you shovel.
* Align your mailbox face with the back of the curb to avoid contact with the snowplows. 
* Remove trash and recycling receptacles, basketball nets, and all other items from the roadway to avoid damages. 
* In the event of a predicted large snowfall, you may want to consider removing your mailbox from the post to avoid damage.
