Residents are reminded to remove all vehicles from public streets in instances when snowstorms are imminent. Please avoid parking in dead ends and cul-de-sacs during snow removal efforts. This will greatly help Borough employees in their plowing efforts. If you have available space on your property for off-street parking, please use it when it snows.
We are also offering another reminder to mark the edge of your lawns with brightly colored stakes or flags to aid in locating where the edge of the pavement ends during snow plowing. Please remove all ornamental decorations, basketball structures, etc. that may end up in the path of the snow plows. These simple yet conscientious efforts will greatly assist the Borough crew in clearing the snow and minimizing personal property damage.
Last, but not least in the way of cold weather and snow reminders, please keep your sidewalks clear. The Borough has ordinances which require that property owners clear their sidewalks of snow within 24 hours of a snowfall event. This ordinance is intended as a Public Safety measure. Getting the snow or slush off of your sidewalks as quickly as possible helps prevent the buildup of ice and snow from becoming a hazard to pedestrians and a liability to you.
