Helpful Snow Removal Information: When possible, wait until the snowplows have cleared your street before shoveling your driveway and sidewalks. The intent is to plow curb to curb. Therefore, please remove vehicles from the street to allow a safer and faster snow removal process. If you do shovel prior to your street being plowed, it is best to shovel the snow to the side of the driveway where the plow passes last. Also, please clear out snow from around any fire hydrants within your vicinity. Thank you!! Township Ordinance prohibits blowing and throwing of snow onto the street.

And remember to allow for extra time and be safe when the roads are icy or snow covered. The crew is out there trying to keep the roads safe for all residents. The application of anti-skid can take over 5 hours; while plowing 330 lanes of public streets can easily take twice that long.
