The Village's Department of Public Works crew is working on salting and plowing Village streets and downtown sidewalks. A summary of their activities is as follows:
Major streets have been plowed; crews are working on local streets. Downtown sidewalks have been plowed. Parking places will be cleared as they are accessible.
Over the next several hours crews will be working on pushing the snow back (where necessary) so that the entire roadway is cleared. This may result in snow being pushed into resident and business driveways. To minimize the inconvenience the crews are doing this today so that hopefully residents/businesses will only have to shovel once.
Residents can assist the crews in completing their work by moving vehicles off the streets and out of public parking areas, when possible.
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.
