During a snow storm, the Public Works employee’s
are working hard to make your streets safe.
Township trucks may plow your street several
times and as the snow rolls off the plows it
sometimes accumulates in driveways. Please
understand that this is unavoidable and it does
become the homeowner’s responsibility to clear
it. Here are some helpful hints to make “snow”
removal less frustrating:
Shovel snow to the
right side of your driveway (facing the
street) to minimize the amount of snow
entering your driveway.
If possible, wait
until the township trucks have made at least
three passes on your street before cleaning
DO NOT PARK
cars on the street from
after snow have continuously fallen until
snow has stopped. This speeds the removal
process and prevents cars from being plowed
Call the Sewer
Department at (609) 868-2552 when you have a
sewer blockage before calling your plumber.

rules listed below, you can save yourself a call
to the plumber.
