Driveway Clearing

Driveway maintenance is the property owner’s responsibility.  When clearing your driveway off, the snow must be kept on your own property.

Any snow pushed, blown or plowed into any street is illegal under both NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law and NYS Highway Law.

If your driveway is plowed by a private contractor, both the property owner and the plow operator may be ticketed.

Keep Recycle Bins out of the Road:

When you are taking your garbage and recycling bins out to the road edge, be sure to place them on your property. Keep them out of the road, shoulder and gutter.

Placing bins in the road creates a hazard. If we have to go around them with the plows, we are leaving snow and slush in the road where it can freeze and become a dangerous condition.
