Snow Plowing Information


Snow Plowing Information

Attention Residents:

Snow plows typically leave a lump of snow at the ends of driveways as they clear the roadways due to excess snow dispersed from the blade. Please do not shovel the snow back into the street. The snow plows will not exceed the speed limit; however, they must have enough speed to spread the snow when it leaves the plow. If we plow too slowly, a high snow bank is formed that blocks driveways that cars cannot drive over. Snow is very heavy. The design of a snowplow is to remove the snow and force it to the side of the road, a large part of which is airborne and may land on sidewalks. It is for the safety of our residents that the streets are plowed as efficiently as possible.
