Monroe DPW Snow Tips for 2017

The DPW has compiled a list of 10 helpful hints for a snow event:

  1. Park as many cars as possible in your driveway when snow is in the forecast. It makes less snow you have to remove from your drive-way and it makes it easier to clear the roads properly.
     
  2. Please pull basketball hoops off the road if possible.
     
  3. Please advise children to keep off the roads when plow trucks are in the area.
     
  4. Please advise children to make “forts” in your yard not by the road side. This can be very dangerous!
     
  5. Please, when driving, try to give the plow trucks plenty of room. Sometimes it is difficult for the drivers to see and the trucks can slide or have to swerve to avoid things.
     
  6. When shoveling or snow blowing, throwing snow in the road is prohibited.
     
  7. Please try to keep garbage and recycling cans off the road. Snow drifts can knock them over without even touching them with the plow.
     
  8. Please shovel out an area around fire hydrants so our Fire Dept can get to them in case of an emergency.
     
  9. If you have to finish shoveling your driveway before the road is completely cleared, try to shovel a flared out end. That way, when the plow comes again, it only puts a minimum amount of snow back in your driveway.
  10. Give your plow guy a smile or a wave; they are working long and hard hours to make your streets safe.
