Westmont, Illinois -- Date Issued: December 16, 2022
The Village of Westmont takes pride in its snow removal operations and strives to ensure that Village roadways are plowed and safe for the community. The Westmont Public Works Department monitors incoming winter storms so that they can proactively address severe weather situations. Following are some snow removal operation reminders:
Please note, when snow plows are clearing the roadways, some snow gets pushed back into driveways. Please make sure to not return this snow back into the street, but instead shovel snow to the parkways.
If you hire a snow removal service for sidewalks, driveways and parking lots, please make sure to talk with your contractor to ensure that snow is placed on private property and not on the right of way.
BE A GOOD NEIGHBORWestmont property owners are asked to clear sidewalks adjacent to their property at their earliest convenience following a snowfall. Landlords are responsible for keeping sidewalks, parking lots, and all common areas, including open stairwells, free from hazardous conditions at all times.
Also, residents are encouraged to help the Fire Department by shoveling out fire hydrants. Shoveling a three-foot perimeter around a hydrant and a path to the hydrant from the street will allow quick access in the event of an emergency.
Working together, we can make sure that our roads and sidewalks are safe for everyone.
