SNOW REMOVAL SERVICES
Street safety is a primary concern for the Township during the winter months.
The Public Works Department provides snow removal and deicing of Township
streets whenever road conditions call for these services.
Please remember that snow removal operations are being performed under
emergency conditions. Drivers experience extended workhours to provide safe,
effective removal. Please help us in protecting the safety
of your children playing in areas of accumulated snow, especially if
"igloos" have been built in prior storms. The best step to take is not
to allow unsupervised children out to play when snowplow operations are expected
and until they are completed. Here are tips for the homeowner:
Leave the last two (2) feet of your drive unshoveled until we have
completed curb to curb removal. This will prevent our plows from plowing
this area back in.
If you must shovel the very end of your driveway prior to our completion,
place the snow to the right of your driveway (with your back facing your
house). If placed in this area, this lessens the amount of snow plowed back
onto the drive area.
These tips may help you avoid shoveling the end of your driveway more than
once. Please understand that proper plowing operations for the
roadway cannot prevent the redeposit of snow in driveway areas.
