1/2/2008 - Snow Removal Reminder

In an effort to further help prevent hazardous and dangerous conditions on the roadways, the Department of Public Works would like to remind all private businesses and residents of the requrements of Town Code, Section 155-10.  This section states that no person shall plow, push or shovel snow or ice from private parking lots, driveways or sidewalks into the public roadways as to cause any ridge of ice or snow, resulting in hazardous or dangerous conditions to traveling motor vehicles.

Any person violating this code may be fined by the Police Department, Department of Public Works or Department of Inspection Services, no less than $25 for each 24 hour period after receipt of the initial written notice and fine.

The Department of Public Works would like to thank you for your cooperation and support in helping to keep our road ways safe.
