It is illegal to put snow from your driveway onto the street. This action directly violates local ordinances and creates a hazard and interferes with the Village's snow plowing operations. Please pile your snow next to your driveway or in the parkway next to the street.
Yes, the Village has a program for seniors where the Village arranges for a private contractor to remove the snow from a senior's driveway, front walk, and/or public sidewalk after a snowfall of three inches or more. To be eligible for this program, all the following criteria must be satisfied:
- Be a senior (65 or older).
- Have a note from your doctor indicating you are not able to engage in snow removal.
- Have no one else living in the home who is physically able to engage in snow removal.
The deadline for signing up for the program is the end of October each year.
Please keep in mind that the hired private contractors often plow at night. The cost is $15 per occurrence for the driveway, $5 for your front walk, and an additional $5 for your public sidewalk. Therefore, clearing all three areas would cost a senior $25 total per snowfall. The Village will bill you for the snow removal by mail. For interested seniors who would like to enlist in the program, please contact the Village Hall at 847-678-2550, or click here to view the online materials below.
