The DPW plows all Village owned streets, sidewalks and parking lots as necessary 7 days a week, 24 hours a day as necessary during the cold & unseasonable time of the year. The DPW also salts roads as needed to maintain safe driving conditions. In order to maintain safe streets and sidewalks during the winter please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Do not park on village streets between the hours of 3:00 am & 6:00 am from November 15 thru April 15 each year
  • Do not block sidewalks with your vehicle as this makes snow removal difficult for the safe passage of residents and students who walk to school
  • Do not pile snow from your property in the road or on the sidewalk after the DPW has cleared them of snow

See a complete listing of our Winter Parking Rules that will help make the challenging winter months a bit easier.

Removal of Snow & Ice from Sidewalks

  • When snow is removed from sidewalks by the DPW or other contractor using plows it shall be the duty of the occupant or the owner to remove the snow and/or ice remaining after the plows have gone through. 
  • Snow falling after 8:00 pm shall be removed before 9:00 am the next day. 
  • Snow falling after 9:00 am shall be removed before 8:00 pm on the same day. 
  • No person shall sweep or shovel snow from a building or private land onto or into the sidewalk or roadway of any street. 
  • Snow Removal Policy After major snow storms, snow shall first be plowed from all village owned roads, public safety buildings, village owned buildings and public parking lots. Upon completion of these areas, the DPW will then haul snow from other private business areas throughout the community deemed to be a public safety problem, and other areas deemed to be in the interest of public safety at the discretion of the DPW Superintendent and/or the Chief of Police. (Passed by Village Board Resolution 3/93)
