No.  One of the most important responsibilities and challenging tasks facing the Department of Public Works during the Winter Season is keeping the Village roadways and sidewalks safe and accessible during and after a winter storm.  This is done in two phases.  Phase one is the plowing and salting of all Village roads and sidewalks.  Phase two is snow removal. We realize it is frustrating to be “plowed in” by a Village snowplow after clearing your driveway or walkway.  This cannot be helped, it is the DPW’s responsibility to clear all Village roadways and keep them accessible especially for our Emergency Services, Police, Fire and Ambulance.  When clearing your driveway or walkway after you have been “plowed in” pile the snow on your own property.  Do not throw it back into the road as it reacts with the salt, melts, then freezes up and creates a dangerous icing condition.  As for snow removal, please be patient.  DPW must first remove snow from Broadway, Main Street and all major roads; we then concentrate on the side streets and outlying areas.  Your cooperation during storms will be appreciated.
