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 treat 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 and those who can offer assistance (either volunteer or for a fee) may contact the Town office, which maintains a list available to residents upon request. We also encourage residents to use the private Town Neighbors listserv to seek help or offer assistance with snow removal. In addition, residents may contact a Town Teen or any of the service providers listed below for assistance clearing snow.
