Does the Town have a bare road and sidewalk policy?
While we strive to keep roadway and sidewalk surfaces as clear as possible of ice and snow, the Town does not have a bare surface policy. The management philosophy of our snow and ice removal plan is based upon a balance of the basic principles of public safety, cost containment, and environmental sensitivity. We recognize that the public safety of our residents, guests, and travelers is paramount.

At the same time however, we acknowledge that the community has financial limitations which ultimately shape the level of service that is provided. Finally, we understand the environmental impacts from the use of salt and sand in a lake shore community, and strive to limit these factors through our snow and ice removal program.
