Please do not park your car in any cul-de-sac during a snow storm. Cars should remain in your driveway or garage to allow the snowplows to clean curb to curb. Recycling or trash should not be placed in the street as they obstruct the plow. Please place all trash or recycling on the grass strip between the sidewalk and curb. During a snow emergency please remove all vehicles from snow emergency routes. PLEASE do not blow snow back into the street! We are out in a snow storm to make the roads safe and passable and it is made much more difficult when people blow snow back into the road. You can and will be fined for placing snow on any street or road in the Township.
We are aware of how frustrating it can be to clear your driveway only to have the plow come down your street resulting in snow being pushed back on to your driveway apron. This diagram illustrates the proper way to clear your driveway to minimize the “second shovel” caused by the push effect from the plow.
Winter weather can place our road crew and equipment under stress and we are mindful that our residents can be stressed as well. Your safety and that of our crew is of primary concern. Your patience and cooperation will help us do our job as quickly and efficiently as possible.
