Sidewalk & Parking Lot Snow & Ice Removal
Annually, the Town engages the services of a contractor for salting and snow removal activities at the following general locations:
- Town Facility parking lots and sidewalks
- Municipal parking lots
- Fire halls
- Municipal walkways
- Senior citizen’s sidewalks
- Sidewalks adjacent to Regional roads
Since this contract is separate from the Town’s regular snow removal activities along roadways, dead-ends and cul-de-sacs, residents are advised that even though a Town road may be plowed, the adjacent sidewalk or parking lot as noted above may not be completed at the same time as different personnel are involved.
As per the Town’s Quality Standards, the major objective for sidewalk snow clearing and salting is “to improve traction for pedestrian traffic.” It is for this reason that the Town recognizes the importance of the clearing of sidewalks and will work diligently with the contractor to provide a good service for all users.
