Winter Weather Message


It’s Winter Time! 

· Slow down! Give the plows plenty of room.

· Plowing driveways across roadways is dangerous and against the law. Anyone plowing snow across the road will be subject to a violation and may be issued an appearance ticket.

· Vehicles parked or disabled on the road prevent proper snow removal. The vehicles are subject to towing at the owner’s expense.

· Damage done to mailboxes by snowplowing or thrown snow is not intentional. It is town policy not to repair or replace mailboxes which are damaged as a result of normal and proper snowplow operations.

· This message is to help keep you safe and help us to do an efficient job of plowing snow this winter. Thank you.
