Reminder: Snow Ban

With more snow in the forecast for this afternoon/evening, the Association would like to remind residents that parking on the roads/and or berms on association-owned roadways is prohibited when the snow depth exceeds 2″ (two inches). This is necessary in order to facilitate the plowing and/or removal of the snow. There are currently vehicles parked on the roads in the areas of Thrush and Deer Run.

Village Ordinance 303.08 Impounding of Vehicles; Redemption reads:
(a) Police officers are authorized to provide for the removal of a vehicle under the following circumstances: (1) When any vehicle is left unattended upon any street, bridge or causeway and is so illegally parked so as to constitute a hazard or obstruction to the normal movement of traffic, or so as to unreasonably interfere with street cleaning or snow removal operations.

Please help our plow drivers by removing your vehicles and all obstructions from the roadways.

Thank you!
