During the winter season, the Department of Public Works establishes a work schedule which typically commences on or about December 1. This schedule ensures 24-hour coverage, 7 days a week for the duration of the winter. Winter storm events dictate when streets need to be cleaned. The most effective time to clean all Village roads is at night. Therefore, the cooperation of the community is requested to park vehicles in garages and driveways in lieu of the roadway. Furthermore, this is in violation of local law and creates undue hardship for the Village employee.
All individuals plowing and/or cleaning driveways and sidewalks with snow blowers, snow throwers, shovels, plows or other, are not allowed to place / discharge snow into any roadway. The hazards of this act can cause injury and/or death. In addition, this is a violation of Village Ordinance 249-9B, any violators will be fined and prosecuted.
