Snow Plowing

snow-removalSnow Removal and Winter Emergencies

The Village maintains all streets within its boundaries, including clearing the Village streets of seasonal snow and ice. The Village arranges with an independent contractor to provide snow plowing.

Village regulations require residents to clear snow and ice from the sidewalks in front of their property within 24 hours after a storm ceases, making sidewalks safe for pedestrians. Residents of corner lots are responsible for sidewalks in the front and on the side of their property. Fines may be assessed for non-compliance with Village regulations.
