Parking Restrictions

Now is the time to move your car off the street! 

Residents are reminded to remove all vehicles from public roadways during a winter weather event – There is NO PARKING on the roadway during snow and ice events that require plowing and/or salting. Vehicles parked on the roadway interfere with plowing and salting operations and will be ticketed and/or towed. 

Yard Waste Pickup POSTPONED

Yard waste (leaf and branch) pickup has been cancelled for tomorrow, Wednesday, March 21. This pickup has been rescheduled for next Wednesday, March 28. Please do not leave bins and bags at the curb tonight, as this may interfere with plowing operations.

Power Outages Possible

The heavy snow and gusty winds in the forecast mean that power outages are once again a possibility. Please call your electric provider (not 9-1-1) to report a power outage. To report downed power lines and outages to PECO, visit peco.com/outages or call 1-800-841-4141. View the PECO outage map at this link.

To prepare for potential power outages, make sure your emergency kit is stocked with flashlights and extra batteries, as well as non-perishable food, water, and warm clothing. NEVER use portable generators indoors or attempt to heat your home with an oven or stove.

Shoveling Tips

It is a homeowner’s responsibility to maintain the walkways free of snow and ice. Residents are reminded to clear their sidewalks or walkways no longer than 12 hours from the conclusion of a snow/ice event. 

Shoveling can take a toll on your health! Dress warmly, take frequent breaks, and consult your doctor if you have a heart condition. 

Do not deposit snow (shovel and/or snow blower) into the roadway when clearing your driveway or sidewalks. The USPS would like to remind you to clear the snow from the front of your mailbox to facilitate mail delivery.
