Private Contractors and Homeowners

Snow windrows are created by snowplows when clearing roads or driveways of snow; windrow may require removal. When pushing your snow past the banks already made by the Village, ensure your windrow is removed from the road.  The plows can be damaged by this and you may be held liable for repairs for damage of Village plow equipment.

Snow Removal Around Mailboxes

According the U.S. Postal Service, postal carriers will not deliver mail if access to the curbside residential mailboxes has been impeded by the snow accumulations. Residents are responsible for removing the snow around their mailboxes to ensure delivery. See windrow notice as this also applies to snow removal around mailboxes.
