Snow Shoveler Registry

Snow Shoveler Registry

Township ordinances require that snow and ice be removed from your sidewalk no later than 24 hours after the precipitation stops. One of the fundamental purposes of this ordinance is to ensure the safety and welfare of our elderly residents who use public sidewalks as their primary means of transportation. However, many of these same residents are physically unable to comply with the requirements of the ordinances.

At the beginning of the winter season the Police Department solicits the local Middle and High Schools for a list of students who will, for a fee, shovel snow from walks and driveways. The consolidated list may be picked up from the Township Receptionist or will be mailed upon request. The "business" arrangement is then made between the resident and student that he or she chooses to employ.
