Important Winter Reminder

Posted on
Town Hall
As a reminder, the Town ordinance includes the following prohibition:  “No person shall throw or push or cause to be thrown or placed or pushed and leave any ice or snow on the traveled portion of any public highway within the Town of Barkhamsted from any private drive or roadway entering into any such public highway or from any land adjacent to any such public highway”.  This ordinance does also include a provision for fining folks who violate the rules.

The bottom line of this legalese is that residents shall not block town roads during a snowstorm with garbage cans or parked vehicles, and they shall not blow, plow or shovel snow from their driveways onto a town road.

Please adhere to these rules for everyone’s safety, including our highway department members who work extremely long hours to keep our roads clear of snow and safe for everyone.
