Driveway Snow Removal Suggestions

The Public Works Department Personnel recognize the frustration snow removal causes, particularly when you’ve already cleared your driveway or sidewalks.  Many residents become upset if, upon shoveling their sidewalk or driveway, they become "snowed in" once again by a township plow.  There is a simple solution:  Once finished shoveling, stand facing your driveway.  Shovel a pocket (at least 6' long) along the street to the right of your driveway.  If the plow comes by, it will fill the pocket with snow instead of your driveway.
