Residential Snow Shoveling
Residents are reminded to not shovel or blow snow onto plowed or treated streets as the Township has an Ordinance that prohibits this. 

Fire Hydrants
Residents who have a fire hydrant located on their property are also asked to keep it clear of snow with a recommended three-foot radius of clearance. This will assist the local fire companies in finding and using the hydrant in an emergency.
