Snow Removal Tips –
- Residents and businesses are reminded that they are responsible for keeping walkways in front of their homes and businesses clear of snow and ice.
- If snow must be shoveled out to the road, it should be piled to the right-hand side of the driveway (on two-way streets). This allows the plow to reach the snow pile after it passes the drive, pushing less snow back into the driveway; and if a snowplow damages a mailbox, inform the Street Department at 330-544-9000 x 1190.
