Snow Removal Operations Guidelines, Maps, & Regulations

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:

Other rules relating to snow regulations homeowners should be aware of:

  • Depositing of snow on public streets is prohibited: Anyone owning or occupying the whole or part of a building or land abutting public streets in the Town is prohibited from moving snow, debris or any injurious substance onto the public streets and road right-of-ways at any time, unless the person has received permission from the Town to do so.  Such material, if deposited, shall be removed within 24 hours of notice from the Town.  Failure to comply with the notice will cause the Town to have the material removed and the cost will be charged to the property owner.
  • Sidewalks: If you have a sidewalk in front of your property, please remember that it is the property owner’s responsibility to keep the walks free of ice and snow throughout the winter for the safety of all who use them. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
  • Mailboxes: Please be aware that the Town is not responsible for replacing mailboxes if they are hit by the snowplow.  Please ensure that your mailbox is located correctly.
