Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this latest snow storm. Within the next hour the Village's Department of Public Works crew will have completed a majority of plowing activities in the Village. Overnight tonight crews will be working on clearing the snow from downtown parking lots, cleaning out intersections and relocating snow piles where necessary. We do not anticipate that this work will push any additional snow back into driveways.
Please be reminded that although the Village is committed to keeping downtown sidewalks, stairs and boardwalks cleared of ice and snow in a timely manner, they can still be slippery. Please use caution when using these amenities in the winter months.
Please help us keep the Village walkable all year round. As a reminder, Village Ordinance requires the following:
Residents: Please clear your sidewalk of snow and ice within 48 hours of snow cessation.
Business owners: Please clear your sidewalks within 4 hours of snow cessation or by the start of your business day.
Please shovel the snow onto your property. It is against Village Ordinance to shovel the snow into the street or onto a neighbor's property.
We also request that you please help the fire department by making sure that fire hydrants around your home or business are cleared of snow, accessible and visible from the street as soon as possible after a snow storm. Every second counts in an emergency situation.
These reminders should be shared with contractors who are working to remove the snow from private property.
