Top 10 Snow Tips
PlowHere's Our Top 10
  1. Village ordinance prohibits parking on village streets once two inches of snow have fallen.
  2. Parked vehicles must be kept off of the street for ten hours after it has stopped snowing.
  3. When clearing the driveway, residents should place snow on either side of the driveway, on the lawn, and never in a recently plowed street.
  4. Residents should keep garbage cans and recycle bins from rolling into the street on garbage pickup day.
  5. Designate curbs with five free stakes available from the Public Works Department.
  6. Digging from the street, clear out hydrants so that fire personnel can easily access them if necessary.
  7. Do not clear your driveway at the curb until the snow plow driver has made his last curb pass in front of your residence.
  8. Be patient. Every storm is different with many variables. Streets may have to be plowed more than once.
  9. Communicate with the Public Works Department. Report any ice formations on the street so that they can be salted. Clear the snow from storm sewers in front of your home so melting snow can easily drain, preventing ice patches.
  10. Mailboxes should be kept in good repair and be placed at least one foot behind the curb to avoid damage. To ensure mail delivery, residents must clear the snow from around their mailboxes after the street has been plowed.
