With winter just around the corner, we would like to remind the Village residents of some rules and codes concerning the coming snow.


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. License is 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 per vehicle and are available in the Depew Building Department Office.  Proof of registration & insurances must be submitted with each application.  § 203-58. Permit required It is the Responsibility of the Property Owner/Occupant to verify their Plow Contractor is licensed.


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.
