Be Neighborly When it Snows

Remember to Keep Sidewalks and Hydrants Clear

Please remember to act neighborly and keep your sidewalks shoveled, fire hydrants clear of snow, and street drains clear of debris after a heavy snowfall.

If you know of someone who needs assistance with keeping their sidewalk or driveway clear, pitch in and help them out.

If there is a fire hydrant close to your property, remember to help our firefighters by shoveling snow in a three- foot radius around the hydrant to keep it quickly accessible in case of emergency.
