Winter 2016-2017 Community Information
– December 1 through April 1st is our winter parking season to accommodate snow plowing per Village Ordinance 4.02(7). Park on the even numbered side of the street on even numbered days and the odd side of the street on odd numbered days from the hours of 12:01 a.m. and 6:00 a.m..
– Snow needs to be cleared from the sidewalk on your property per Village Ordinance 5.09. Please direct the shoveled snow into your property, not towards the street, as the plows will unintentionally move it back up to the sidewalk if there is not enough room available at the curb. The public works director will, if not cleared within a reasonable amount of time, direct it to be cleared by the Village and placed on the owner’s property tax billing as a special charge. Our children use the sidewalks for passage to school and all of our citizens find it very hazardous to maneuver through the snow and ruts created by sidewalks not shoveled.
– The Village plows do as best as they can to plow up to your mail boxes without doing damage to them, but ultimately it is your responsibility to clear the snow from your mail box area for the mailman. If he can’t get to your mail box, your mail will go back to Dodgeville and delivery will be attempted the next day.
– We all need to pitch in and clear snow from any fire hydrant that may ultimately serve you or someone in your housing area. Property and unfortunately lives can be lost if the fire department has to try to clear them in order to connect their fire hoses during an emergency.
