SIDEWALKS-  Sidewalks have to be clear of snow and ice within 24 hours from when the snow ceases to accumulate.  

FIRE HYDRANTS- Remember to keep fire hydrants clear of snow.  This can save time in the event of an emergency.  If you have a neighbor that needs help with, give them a hand!

 MAILBOX DAMAGE-In the winter months, mailboxes can get damaged when plowing snow.  If a mailbox is hit by the plow, the village will replace the mailbox with a standard mailbox approved by the U.S. Postal Service.  Most often, mailboxes get damaged from the weight of snow when it is being plowed. The Village does not replace mailboxes in the event that they are damaged by flying snow.
