[ARCHIVED] Town of Mamaroneck Snow Operations

     

How Residents and Property Owners Can Help Assure the Safety and Efficiency of the

Town of Mamaroneck Snow and Ice Control Operations

 

·         Stay off the roads as much as possible.

·         Do not park on Town of Mamaroneck streets during snow or ice events. Vehicle owners may be called by the town Police Department to remove vehicles which interfere with plow operations. Cars parked during snow emergencies will be ticketed and towed. Be cognizant of Snow Emergency conditions when declared by the Town.

·         Wear reflective clothing while walking on roads during plowing operations.

·         Do not allow children to build and occupy “snow forts” and similar snow creations within 10 feet of the edge of pavement.

·         Do not relocate snow from driveways and sidewalks into the paved street.  This is in violation of New York State Highway law (Article 8, Section 214) and will cause a hazardous condition on the street. Code Enforcement personnel will issue violations.

·         Shovel or plow an area to the right of your driveway exit to accommodate plowed snow from the street. This will help lessen build-up in your driveway apron when the town plows the road.

·         “Plowing in” driveways by Highway plows is inevitable and unavoidable. Raising plows at every driveway and then immediately dropping them after the driveway opening is not possible. Please schedule your private snow removal after the storm.

·         Yield to Plow Trucks and give them space to operate.

·         Cooperate with the Highway Department to assure safe and efficient clearing of the roads.

·         Be patient, stay off the roads and let the Highway Department provide you with safe winter travel.

PLEASE CALL TO REPORT ICY CONDITIONS OR INADVERTANT SNOW PLOW DAMAGE CAUSED BY

THE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT PLOW TRUCKS.
