Long before the snow falls, the College Township Public Works department begins their preparations to keep our roads clear and safe for travel. Please be reminded of the following:
College Township has adopted a Snow Emergency Ordinance, which stresses the importance of removing vehicles from the roadway in snowy conditions. Property owners and/or occupants are responsible for the removal of snow/ice from sidewalks along any public rights of way abutting property or located on their property. Snow and/or ice is required to be removed within 24 hours of the end of the storm. It is unlawful for owners, occupants, tenants of properties, or contractors to plow, dump, throw, shovel, pile or push any snow or ice onto public streets at any time. Mailboxes should be inspected and repaired each year to make sure they can withstand the rigors of winter weather and being hit by snow or ice thrown by snowplows. Please contact Amy J. Kerner, P.E., Public Works Director, for additional information at 814-231-3021.
