Safety is of the utmost importance when it comes to winter weather conditions. During winter weather events, the Town’s goal to maintain the roads in drivable conditions, and to return them to pre-snow event conditions as soon as possible. The time it takes to restore the roads back to pre-snow event conditions is determined by many factors such as weather conditions, temperature, amount of snow, duration of the snow event itself, compacted snow on roadways due to traffic, and the weight of the snow.
If the Town experiences severe winter weather a “Snow Emergency” may be declared to aid in snow removal efforts. During a snow emergency, any and all vehicles must be removed from the Town roadways. Failure to do so will result in a parking citation and towing of the vehicle at the owner’s expense. If a vehicle is damaged during snow emergency plowing operations neither the Town nor the Town’s plowing contractor will be responsible for any damage. Snow Emergencies are announced on the Town’s website, FaceBook and Twitter pages, and the local news and radio stations. Please see our Winter Plowing Guidelines and Plow Route Maps below:
