When authorized by the Police Chief or Street Superintendent, a Declared Snow Emergency Parking Ban will be in effect on all posted snow routes when there is an accumulation of 3" or more of snow and until the snow emergency has been lifted. There shall be NO PARKING at any time on any snow-ban streets except by Fire, Police or other public safety vehicles. NO VEHICLE shall be parked or positioned in such a manner as to interfere with the snow removal. The Police Chief and Street Supt. lift the ban, when conditions warrant.
Illegally parked vehicles are the biggest obstacles to effect snow removal efforts. When a snow emergency has been declared, any vehicle in violation of this section shall be ticketed and may be towed at the expense of the owner.
It is prohibited for residents or private contractors to blow or push snow from driveways and sidewalks into the roadway. Every day that such snow/ice is allowed to remain in such a manner as to obstruct or impede the free passage of vehicular traffic is subject is subject to police action. Residents, who have their driveways plowed by private contractors, are reminded that they are responsible for their contractor's actions. Each time the crew has to return to a street to push back illegally dumped snow, it cost the Village money.
After a storm, it may be necessary to lay streets back. Residents need to be aware that snow may be pushed into driveways as plows return to widen the streets. Snow plowed in front of driveways and walks is a routine downside of snow removal operation and is not done on purpose.
