The Town has piled snow where I park in front of my House, what can I do about this?

The town will sometimes need the area in front of a residence for temporary snow storage. If your car is there we have no choice but to windrow around it. The best thing that you can do is have your vehicles off the street during any snow events until the town is able to clear the streets. Doing so helps increase the efficiencies and safety for all involved parties.

Sidewalk Snow Clearing

Along with maintaining snow removal on our streets, our Public Works staff are also responsible for sidewalk clearing in front of the Business sector on 2nd Street (Main Street), Bus stops and pathways.
Pathways along residential homes are under the responsibility of the home owner and it is their job to maintain it.

The plow truck came through and plowed snow in front of my driveway, what can I do about this?

In our efforts to clear the streets snow is plowed into the gutters. To minimize snow being pushed back onto the sidewalk, residents are asked to shovel the snow from sidewalks and driveways onto your lawns. During heavy snowfall large windrows may occur and may not be removed immediately, it is the residents responsibility to remove any windrows blocking access to your property.
