It is the time of year when we will see varying amounts of snow in our community. The Town of Erie Public Works Department Operation & Maintenance Division is ready with a snow control plan to keep streets safe and accessible during periods of snow and ice. The goal is to provide snow and ice control services for the safe through-travel of residents and commuters. By Town Ordinance, property owners are responsible for clearing their sidewalks of snow within 24 hours following each snowstorm.
Snow should not be shoveled into the streets, but rather the snow should be placed back on the resident's property (to provide moisture for landscaping and reduce runoff).
