NEWS > PLOWS AND SHOVELS AND SNOWFLAKES! OH MY!
Plows and shovels and snowflakes! Oh My!
Plowing the public streets when it snows can be a monumental task, and Borough crews work around the clock to clear the snow. We know residents are anxious to have their streets thoroughly cleared. The Borough first plows major streets for emergency vehicle passage as the highest priority. After that, clearing side streets is the next priority. Once all the streets are passable, then crews work on clearing snow from intersections and parking spaces. In major storms, in order to clear the downtown streets and meter parking spaces, we use large construction equipment to load snow on dump trucks to haul it out of the center of town.
Be a good neighbor.
Remember – Borough law requires that property owners remove snow and ice from their sidewalks within 10 hours after the end of the snowfall. Over night snowfall must be removed by 10 am the next morning. Repeated failure to clear walks seriously endangers those who use the sidewalks and may subject property owners to citations.
