If temperatures drop into the single digits, the effectiveness of road salt to clear ice and snow from roadways becomes limited.

All property owners are required to clear snow from sidewalks within 24 hours of the end of the snow event. When possible use grassy areas to pile snow.

Do not bury fire hydrants with snow. Those caught burying fire hydrants will be fined. It is ask that you assist Emergency Responders and clear snow away from the fire hydrant.
