Please do not throw or plow snow onto Town roads. Not only is this a violation of State Law, it also causes an unsafe condition for motorists and the Town Highway crew. Be sure when you clear your driveway that no snow is thrown or left on the road.
Also, please remove your garbage and recycling containers from the roadside. These are also a hazard. If they are destroyed by the snow plows they will not be replaced by the Town.
