Considering the projected snowfall amount for the Selinsgrove Area, the Borough of Selinsgrove requests the following:
All residents should move cars from the streets to off-street parking areas. Borough employees will make every effort to plow snow as close to the curbline as possible. This will allow better travel conditions and assist all property owners, residents and business owners to clear a parking area on the street following the snow storm.
DO NOT SHOVEL OR BLOW SNOW INTO STREETS!
This only creates a road hazard.
CLEAR AT LEAST 36” AROUND ANY FIRE HYDRANT NEAR YOUR HOUSE OR BUSINESS.
Being proactive in clearing around hydrants, can help save lives in the event of a fire.
Additionally, a reminder to all property owners that you have 24 hours after the snow stops to clear sidewalks. During a snowfall of this magnitude, it may become necessary to plow snow onto sidewalks to keep the streets passable.
The most important objective of the Borough Public Works Department is safety. They will make every effort to keep the streets navigable for all motorists and it needs the cooperation of all property owners.
