According to its post, residents must remove all vehicle from streets after two inches of snow or more have accumulated, as parked cars are an obstacle to snow plows. Plows that have to go around parked cars leave large amounts of snow and ice on the roadway. Vehicles in violation may be towed.

Parking is available in all municipal lots during a snow emergency.

Residents should stay back from a plow truck by at least 200 feet, as trucks need to back up on a regular basis.

The Village also advises residents too shovel snow from driveways onto lawns and not into the street. This is in order to avoid creating dangerous or slippery conditions.

It is also advised to place property markers on property lines as it helps the person plowing distinguish between the road and property.
