Winter Reminders:

Private snow contractors must clear all snow from the public streets and sidewalks. Residents are prohibited from blowing or shoveling snow into the streets or leave on the sidewalks. As a courtesy the village removes snow from the sidewalks and does the main school route first. However, it is the property owner’s responsibility to keep the sidewalk clear of snow & ice. Please be considerate of the DPW employees when they are removing snow. Mail Boxes Please check your mailbox post to be sure it is stable before the winter season is upon us and that the box is securely on the post. Mailboxes and / or supports that are damaged as a result from snowplowing are not subject to replacement by the Village.
