Winter is quickly approaching and the snow will be falling soon. The street department will be clearing the streets in a quick and efficient manner and should be finishing the entire town within 24 hours after the snow event has passed out of our area. If you clean your walk or drive before they are finished you run the risk of the snow from the street being pushed onto your cleared area. Please wait until the streets are cleaned from curb to curb before you clean the area closest to the road. We cannot avoid moving the snow onto your property and the streets must be cleared for emergency vehicles to have access thru town as well as residents. Your cooperation and patience is appreciated and remember that when you clean your drive, please place the snow in your yard and not back into the street. As always, alleys and cul-de-sacs will be last to be cleaned.
