When it snows, it's important to plow & salt/sand the streets quickly & completely to make them passable for traffic and easier for police, EMS and the fire department to respond to emergencies. Areas that are particularly important are one-way streets, hills, and roads with narrow passage.

How to Avoid Problems When Roads Are Ice or Snow Covered:
Move your car into your driveway so it is not on the road. If you do not have a driveway, move your car to one of the Borough parking lots. Parking is free of charge during a snow storm in Borough operated parking lots.

Be Sure to Clear Your Sidewalks:
All property owners (including commercial & professional) are reminded they have 12 daylight hours to clear snow from sidewalks once the precipitation has ended.

Fire Hydrants:
We also ask that you help the Somerville Fire Department by ensuring that the fire hydrants near your house or business are cleared in the event of a fire.

Thank you for your cooperation and please be safe during the upcoming winter storm.
