Streets and Public Parking Lots
Snow removal of streets, alleys, public parking lots, and designated sidewalks is performed by the Village of Duchess as needed. Snow clearing locations are prioritized according to the Snow Removal Policy. We ask that plows and other equipment are given adequate space while clearing roads to ensure everyone’s safety. It is helpful to avoid parking on the street during significant snowfalls so we can clear as much snow as possible in front of your property.
For your safety and ours, please give snow clearing equipment room to work!
Property owners are responsible for keeping sidewalks in front of their property clear. Village of Duchess bylaws state that there is a 24hr maximum grace period for property owners to clear sidewalks after a snowfall. Residents with snowblowers are encouraged to help clear their neighbours’ sidewalks.
Please don’t shovel snow or aim the discharge chute of your snowblower onto the street after we’ve cleared it
