Snow Reminder: Be a Good Neighbor

Please clear snow from sidewalks near your home. Keeping sidewalks clear, especially near intersections, is very helpful for children walking to school or their bus stops, mail carriers, dog walkers, and other neighbors who use the sidewalks. If you know of a neighbor who is unable to clear their sidewalks, consider lending a hand to keep the sidewalks in your neighborhood clear.
