Snow Removal

Please remember to keep your sidewalks clear of snow. Also try not to push the snow into the roadways. We do our best to clear the streets in the Village in a timely manner. Please keep in mind this is a one machine crew. As a result of clearing the streets, your driveway may need some extra shovelling. This is an unfortunate side effect so you can drive down the street. We appreciate your patience and help during this process.
