Winter snow reminder

 After the Snowvember event we would like to inform the Village residents of some rules and codes concerning our upcoming winter.

1. Sidewalks need to be cleared by 9:00 A.M. the day following a snow fall. § 203-2. Sidewalk maintenance

2. Plowing, snow blowing, or shoveling snow into the street is illegal and you can be cited for these violations. § 203-60. Interference with public thoroughfares prohibited

3. Permits are required to plow snow in the Village of Depew; they are required for any plow operator unless plowing their own property. The cost is $15.00 and available at the Depew Clerk’s Office (716-683-7451) . § 203-58. Permit required

 

We know if the residents all work together and help each other out we can keep our sidewalks clear and safe, if you have a neighbor who needs assistance clearing sidewalks be a good neighbor and help them out.  Lastly please try to keep fire hydrants clear of snow to avoid delays in emergencies and be sure your house number is clearly visible so in a time of emergency aid can reach you without delay. Let’s all work together as we have done in the past and make it a safe winter season in our Village.
