Snow Removal Ordinance

To all residents and businesses, this is once again a friendly reminder that unfortunately the winter is not yet over, as much as some of us would like that. Therefore, our ordinance for snow removal is being shown below so there is no confusion as to what is expected from you in order to keep our beautiful town safe for all. Thank you! The Building Department understands that this winter has been hard on all of you, so we are going to relax the amount of time to clear the snow. The clearing needs to be completed by Monday 2/22/21, after that a summons could be issued. Please do your best and remember you can cut a path around the big piles of snow that the plows leave while doing their job of keeping the roads safe for all.
