Highway Superintendent Ron Maggs
WINTER IS HERE and we've been out plowing! Some important things to remember... DO NOT allow the kids to play in the snow mounds near the street! Drivers cannot stop as quickly in winter conditions, drivers cannot see them when they are hiding in the snow, as the plows go by it could be very easy to be buried in the snow. There is no parking on the streets from 2AM to 7AM until April 1st.
Also, it is against the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law (sec. 1219) to deposit snow or any other material on public highways and sidewalks. No person shall plow, blow or shovel snow onto or across a highway or sidewalk.
Definition of Highway: The entire width between the boundary lines of every way publicly maintained when any part thereof is open to use of the public for purposes of vehicle travel.
It is homeowners responsibility to keep snow on your own property or proper steps will have to be taken to prosecute violators.
We need to work together to keep our roads open during the snow season, Thank you for your cooperation!
