Snow Removal

Street Snow Removal


The town is responsible for snow removal from town streets. Plow crews operate continuously until the streets are clear. Park cars either in driveways or on the even side of the street to ensure safe passage for the crews.

Please do not park cars on the odd side of the street unless otherwise posted. If you have any additional questions about snow removal, please contact the Town Office.

Sidewalk Snow Removal


In the event of winter weather, residents are responsible for clearing snow from the sidewalk in front of their house. The town assists with the clearing of public sidewalks only when snow accumulates to 6 inches or more. The snow removal will begin as soon as practically possible after the end of a snowstorm, and the town's contractor will do all they can to limit excessive noise. In icy conditions, the town manager will use his discretion in determining whether to salt and sand public sidewalks. The town will continuously update information on the sidewalk snow removal program on its website, Alert TOCC, and the Town Crier so it will be accessible to you throughout the winter season.

Residents who need assistance clearing snow from their sidewalks up to 6 inches, and residents who can offer assistance shoveling snow for their neighbors in need, may contact the Town office. Assistance can be offered by residents willing to volunteer or charge for their services.  The Town will provide the lists of those needing help, and those offering it, to any Town resident upon request.  We also encourage residents to use the private Town Neighbors listserv to seek or offer assistance with sidewalk snow removal.  

Private Walks


Clearing snow from driveways and private walkways is the responsibility of the homeowner.
