During winter storms there are many ways residents are able to help Municipal staff provide thorough and efficient snow removal services.  The following is a list of Do’s and Don’ts for residents to follow during snow/ice storms.  Following these guidelines will help provide safe passage for everyone, be it on foot or by car.


Clear the sidewalk in front of your home within 24 hours (required by Municipal Ordinance)
Move vehicles from the street into your driveway so as to not obstruct Municipal Snow Plows
Clear fire hydrants of snow and ice so they are visible and quickly accessible
Clear all vehicle windows of snow and ice BEFORE operating the vehicle (required by PA Vehicle Code)
Clear sufficient space to accommodate garbage and recycling containers
Help elderly or disabled neighbors that may not be able to clear snow as required
Delay unnecessary travel until after roads have been cleared


Place snow from driveways or sidewalks into the roadway (prohibited by Municipal Ordinance)
Leave vehicles on or near the road in a manner that will hinder snowplow activities.
