Snow and Ice Removal

Snow and Ice Removal

ice and snow pic - CopyThe Village of Kronenwetter's snowplows are ready for winter! During a snow event, please remember to drive with caution and give snowplows plenty of room.
We are watching the streets for you and deployment will be made as needed, according to developing conditions. The Village of Kronenwetter is NOT responsible for plowing county or state highways.
The End of Your Driveway
The Village crew uses side discharge plows. As the plows move forward, snow moves along the blade from the left to the right. The discharge from the blade is deposited along the side of the road on the village right-of-way. This discharge, officially known as a “windrow”, ends up leaving a relatively small amount of snow in driveway approaches along the route. While we understand the aggravation this can cause, this natural result of plowing is unavoidable.
Your Mailbox
The goal of the Public Works Department is to clear the streets for safe travel. No matter how hard we try, it is not possible to provide perfect conditions for your mail carrier. Final clearing adjacent to mailboxes is the responsibility of each resident. Removing snow around your mailbox also helps reduce the possibility of damage. If you think your mailbox was damaged by one of our plows, please check out the Village's Mailbox Damage Policy.
Parking 
From November 1 to May 1, the Village does not allow street parking between 2:00 am and 7:00 am. The Village prohibits any person from parking a motor vehicle on the street during a snow removal emergency. The Director of Public Works is authorized to declare that a snow removal emergency exists, and no parking signs shall not be required.
