The DPW reminds residents not to throw their snow into the streets thinking that the traffic will dissipate the snow.
Actually, the snow often re-freezes causing hazardous driving conditions.
The DPW also asks that residents not park in the streets until the plowing has been completed.
Keeping the streets clear facilitates the DPW to provide curb to curb snowplowing service.
Residents and businesses are reminded that they are responsible for clearing their sidewalks within 24 hours after the snow stops.
The Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department also asks residents and businesses to keep the fire hydrants cleared of snow. ###
