 SNOW EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

In order to facilitate the movement of traffic and to combat the hazards of snow and ice on snow emergency routes, the Township may declare a snow and ice emergency. After any snow emergency is declared, it shall be unlawful, at any time during the continuance of the emergency, for any person:

A. To park a motor vehicle or to allow that vehicle to remain parked anywhere on any snow emergency route.

B. To drive any motor vehicle on any such snow emergency route, unless that vehicle is equipped with snow tires or chains.

A list of snow emergency routes is available on this website under the Highway Department

 

Swatara Township is asking all residents to remove vehicles from roadways so that plows can remove snow curb to curb.  If you have a driveway, please use it.   

Remove portable basketball hoops from the cart way of streets or alleys.  The Township is not responsible for causing such damage to these items. Chapter 249, Article VI, of the Township Code addresses Street Obstructions. The Code states, “It shall be unlawful for any person to park, place or in the case of a person who is the owners, lessee or otherwise has an interest in the object, allow to remain, any object other than a motor vehicle in the cart way of any street, alley or way of the Township.”   

If you have a sidewalk, please shovel or blow the snow to the yard side, not the street side.  Throwing snow into the street is against the Vehicle Code, punishable by fine, and can make you liable for any accidents.

Help protect your own property by making sure the fire hydrant and storm drain nearest your property is kept clear of snow.  There are thousands of these in the township and it is impossible for our crew to clear them all.  After the roads have been plowed, most of our time is spent repairing and readying equipment for the next storm.

If you live in a new housing development there is a good chance that the road has not yet been dedicated to the Township.  This means that the winter road maintenance is the responsibility of the developer.  The Township will not risk damaging its equipment by plowing roads that are unfinished.
