Snow Removal January 07, 2022 by Borough Admin Snow Removal from sidewalks Cooperation of Borough residents is vital to the success of snow removal operations. Below are the snow removal policies in Shippensburg Borough. Plowing operations begin with the accumulation of 3.5 inches of snow. Salting operations begin with an accumulation of one inch of snow or as slippery conditions develop. Snow will be plowed as close to the curb as possible. Driveways and sidewalks will be plowed shut; it cannot be avoided. Residents/property owners must remove snow/ice from sidewalks and crosswalk entrances within twelve hours after the snow/ice has ceased to fall or form. If snow/ice accumulation ceases after 6 PM, snow/ice removal must be done before 10 AM the following morning, or within twelve hours if a twelve-hour period extends beyond 10 AM. If removal does not occur within twelve hours, the Borough will be forced to contract to have the snow removed at owners expense and a $75.00 ticket will be issued. If ticket is not paid in full within 10 days, a citation will be issued. As a reminder, it is unlawful to throw, place or dispose of any snow or ice upon any portion of any street, highway, avenue, or roadway. Shoveling snow onto public roadways creates hazardous driving conditions and property owners can be held responsible for accidents which result from snow being placed onto roadways. Cleaning Snow around Fire Hydrants is Every Citizen’s Job. As soon as the snow stops falling, clear the fire hydrant nearest to your home or property.
