Snow Removal Tips

shoveling snow Shoveling, dumping, plowing and blowing snow onto streets and public sidewalks is a violation of local ordinances. Snow that is re-deposited on Village streets and sidewalks can cause hazardous conditions for both motorists and pedestrians. Please clear the sidewalks of snow, especially for children walking to school. Make sure fire hydrants are visible for firefighters.

Shoveling tip: shovel snow with the direction of traffic to help reduce the amount of snow plowed back onto driveway aprons.
