Snow Removal

During those harsh winter months in Northeast Ohio, we often experience heavy snowfall and or ice buildup on our roadways. The Service Department, through the hard work of the street crews, works to remove the white stuff from our roads and to lay down salt and/or brine solutions to minimize or eliminate ice.

Our crews work hard to keep the roadways and sidewalks clear during the winter. Here’s some snow removal tips for you that will help us do a better job and will help out your fellow motorists and pedestrians this season.

  1. Do not plow snow into the roadways.
  2. Do not plow snow onto the sidewalks.
  3. Sidewalks are to be kept clear of any snow and ice due to pedestrians and school children that use these sidewalks on a daily basis. The Street Departments #1 priority is to make sure the road ways are clear.
  4. Don’t plow snow onto other people’s property unless you have permission from them to do so.
  5. Help out neighbors who are physically unable to shovel themselves out.
  6. Remove snow frequently and promptly, especially during heavy storms or back-to-back storms. Snow that is allowed to build up will be far heavier and harder to remove. It’s easier to shovel smaller amounts several times than to shovel a large amount once.

Remember, we’re all in this together. Winter weather spares no one in NE Ohio. Through a team effort, we can keep our streets and sidewalks clear and safe for all.
