Township Snow Removal Practices:

 Our Department of Public works continue to prepare for this event as we speak.  Clearlane is applied up to the first 3 inches and plows are dropped at 4 inches.  Township roads are plowed continually throughout the event.  As for Wednesday, there is a potential for blowing snow and icing.   Wind speeds of 10 to 20 mph will impact roadways and these slick spots will be evident.   The timing and length of the event will dictate the amount of snow.  Recognize that hazardous driving conditions will be in place during the snow storm through Wednesday after the snow storm subsides.  

Residents should note that streets marked no parking during a snow event are to be adhered too during this time period.  This permits the clearing of main township roads at full length for emergency vehicles.    

Residents Should:

Remove all cars from the roads that are marked as such.  To help our Department of Public Works try to have all cars removed from the roads as feasible to ensure the best removal of the snow.
