• Snow Removal Information

    LET IT SNOW! LET IT SNOW! LET IT SNOW!

    With the approach of the possibility of accumulating snow, Mountville Borough asks for your patience and cooperation during a snow event. The Borough is not permitted to assist residents by clearing their driveway, sidewalk, etc. Please remember the following safety tips to protect yourselves and assist our operators to be as efficient as possible in the snow removal process:

    • If you have driveways and garages, park your vehicles off street. This will allow the snow removal team to clear the Borough streets curb to curb and helps prevent having your vehicle(s) plowed in.
    • Unfortunately, it is impossible for snowplows to avoid having snow placed at the bottom of driveways. It will be helpful if you shovel snow in your driveway to the right side of your driveway (as you face the road). In addition, clear the area immediately to the left of your driveway which will allow the plow to unload before reaching your driveway and avoid the bulk of the snow to be pushed back onto the driveway.
    • Do not shovel, blow, or plow the snow from your driveway and/or sidewalk into the roadway at any time. This creates hazardous driving conditions and is a violation of State and Borough laws.
    • Mountville Borough has an ordinance that states that a pathway of at least three feet (3’) in width must be cleared within 24 hours after the snow has ceased. There are penalties that may apply if this ordinance is not obeyed. This is for the safety of all pedestrians, especially our school children.
    • Please keep storm drains opened and fire hydrants cleared that are near your residence.
    • Make sure you have emergency supplies for your entire household in case you end up having to remain in your home for a few days. Be a good Samaritan and check on your elderly neighbors to see if they need someone to run errands or remove the snow on their property.
    • Take caution not to overexert yourself when shoveling snow. Take frequent breaks and drink plenty of fluids. Bend from your knees, not your back, to prevent back injury. Be careful not to overload your shovel. Try to push snow when possible instead of lifting it.
    • Make sure that your snowblower is turned off before attempting to clear any snow that may clog the chute or any moving parts of the blower.
    • Heavy snow, hard packed snow, or ice on a gas meter could temporarily stop the flow of natural gas and could create a safety hazard.
    • If you must drive, make sure to give yourself enough time to get to your destination. Chances are, it will take longer than normal.
    • Drivers- please be aware of children playing in the snow or sledding!

    Many thanks from our Snow Plowing team for your cooperation and patience during snow events!
