|Am I allowed to shovel/plow snow into the Public Roadway?
The Highway Department spends thousands of dollars annually on snow removal to keep the roadway clear and safe for the traveling public. Shoveling/plowing snow into the roadway presents a hazard in the roadway not to mention that it is an illegal act. Appropriate action will be taken by the Town to all known offenders. Please consider your thoughts as you are driving down the road and come upon this hazard of others doing the same. The weather presents enough of a challenge negotiating the highways without needlessly adding to those challenges. back to top
|What do I do to get the Snow Plow to stop filling in the end of my Driveway with snow?
Unfortunately, the snow from the Public Roadway has to go to the edge of the road. That is why there are snow banks on the side of the roads. The driveways at the road are going to receive some of this snow whether it is a 1" or 12" snow fall event.
Please do not feel this is personal. The entire staff in the Highway Department also has to shovel snow out of their driveways when they get home. back to top
|Does the Highway Department repair damages to lawns due to snow plowing operations?
When screened topsoil becomes available, the Highway Department will come around to repair and seed damaged areas from our snow removal activities. Topsoil generally becomes available around the end of April or beginning of May. back to top
