SNOW PLOWING FOR TOWNSHIP ROADS - The Highway Department’s policy will begin plowing the most heavily traveled roads first. Salting and cindering will be performed as needed. After initial plowing, it is necessary to have the plow return to widen the path. This provides an area to plow additional snow if another storm should arrive prior to a melting period. Residents are asked to park their cars in a driveway, if at all possible. It’s almost impossible for the township equipment operator not to push snow into driveways that are already plowed. This is not done deliberately. The Highway Department tries to clear all roads. In addition, we ask that you pull back all portable basketball standards onto your property as a safety precaution for our plow operators.
SNOW EMERGENCY ROUTES - Residents are required to remove parked vehicles from along streets and roads posted as snow emergency routes, if a township snow emergency is declared. Snow emergency announcements will be made over radio and television.
SNOW REMOVAL FOR SIDEWALKS - Property owners abutting a sidewalk are reminded of the township’s ordinance requiring residents to clear snow/ice within 24 hours of a snowfall. This is for the safety of the public as well as that of the property owner.
FIRE HYDRANTS - Residents are requested to clear the areas around fire hydrants to ensure adequate fire protection. Valuable time could be lost if your local fire company must clear the hydrant before hoses can be connected.
