Snow Removal

Our goal is to clear the roads to make them as safe as possible. Snow is removed curb to curb.  Help us help you by remembering the following:

  • Park your vehicles on the odd side of the road to assist in street plowing.
  • Once plowed, please move vehicles to the even side allowing the road crew to finish the plowing.
  • Keep the curb line clear of garbage cans, branches, portable basketball nets, and vehicles.
  • Consider shoveling your driveway out after your street plowing has been completed.  It cannot be helped that plowing area roadways will cause snow to block driveways, at times.
  • Walkways must be shoveled within 24 hours of the end of the snowfall.
  • Call  PSE&G directly to report power outages.
