[ARCHIVED] Winter Property Maintenance Reminders

Snow Plows

Windsor residents and business owners are responsible for shoveling sidewalks within 24 hours after a storm and for keeping all sidewalks free of snow and ice.

As community members are working on their personal property, there are things you can do to maximize snow plow efforts on main/residential roads.

  • Pile snow in the grass. It is unlawful to shovel snow from driveways and sidewalks into the street or public right of way, typically five feet behind the curb. Do not pile snow on or around fire hydrants.
  • Clear flow pans and gutters to help eliminate ice backups in storm drains.
  • Move your mail box. Residents living outside town limits should make their mail box snow worthy to prevent damage. The Town of Windsor assumes no responsibility for damages to mail boxes.
  • Park your vehicles in driveways. Remove vehicles from the streets so that snow removal equipment can plow the area.
  • Trim trees along public roads in order for snow removal equipment to get as close to the curb as possible.

“Often in storms, our crews are working around the clock to clear the roads and apply de-icing material,” said Streets Supervisor Brian Rowe. “We ask for the community’s help, so we can do the best job possible in keeping our streets clear and safe.”

If you see snow purposely moved into the street or sidewalks that haven’t been cleared within 24 hours, please call the Town of Windsor Code Enforcement team at 970-674-6400.
