WINTER WEATHER

Here are some tips for residents about the Borough’s winter operations:    

 _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL

Snow and ice is to be removed from all sidewalks in front of or alongside properties, and is to be removed within 24 hours after such snow and ice has stopped.  There shall be a clear walk which must be at least 3’ wide along the entire length of the sidewalk.  In the event the snow and ice becomes so hard it cannot be removed, sand or another abrasive can be placed upon the sidewalk to make travel reasonably safe and, as weather permits, proceed to clear a path.

An accumulation of snow and ice on a building or any other structure which is liable to fall on any sidewalk, roadway or other public way must be removed within a reasonable time, but no later than 24 hours after the cessation of any fall of snow, sleet or freezing rain.

Snow and ice shall also be removed surrounding a fire hydrant, and no snow shall be deposited immediately next to a fire hydrant, or on any sidewalk, travel lane of a street or loading or unloading area of public transportation system.
