SNOW REMOVAL REMINDERS
The main concern whether you are plowing, shoveling, or snow blowing is safety. Any time snow is placed in the right-of- way it is a violation and a summons can be issued. It is illegal to plow snow across the roadway. Plow any windrows of snow that are at the end of your driveway into the existing snow bank. All snow must be removed from the right-of-way prior to the town crew’s cleanup pass. Please refer to Title 29-A, Chapter 19, §2069, (2) and Chapter 21, §2396, (4) for the laws relating to snow removal by clicking on the following link: http://janus.state.me.us/legis/statutes/29-A/title29-Ach0sec0.html
State of Maine law views mailboxes as an encroachment in the public way, put there at the owner’s risk and Municipalities are not legally liable for any damage or repairs to mailboxes due to plowing operations.
The most helpful thing you can do is show patience and appreciation for the road crew. Snow removal is a grueling and time consuming task. We are a small town and our crew works until the job is done. Thank you.
Emergence Services Announcement
We are all struggling with piles of snow, but the emergency services have some unusual difficulties. The ambulance or the fire engines must be able to find your house and get in and out of your driveway. We ask you to please make sure your house number is visible, which may mean shoveling out the snow around your mailbox so the number can be seen from both sides, and that your driveway is plowed wide enough for an emergency vehicle to get in and out safely.
