The Public Works Department would like everyone to understand the streets are the priority to be plowed first and foremost and then the parking stalls are cleared. Also, owners are reminded to keep their sidewalks shoveled and cleared of snow and ice. Handicapped ramps are also the responsibility of the property owners. And, a final note, residents are urged to make sure their fire hydrants are shoveled out in case of an emergency.
