Blizzard Prep: Snow Removal / Fire Hydrants

Dear Neighbors,

With the impending storm approaching, I’d like to remind all homeowners of our responsiblities when it comes to snow removal.  Per the rules and regulations, homeowners with fire hydrants and drainage basins in front of their homes must clear them within 24 hours of the completion of the storm.  Please view the attached recommendation from the Meriden Fire Department.  However, all homeowners are encouraged to help their neighbors with regard to these requirements as all our homes will benefit.  

• All vehicles should be removed from the street. This will allow our snow removal contractors easy access and more efficient cleanup of the street.  Any costs incurred for additional visits due to cars on the street will be assessed back to those specific homes.

• Under no circumstances should snow from the driveway be thrown back onto the street. All snow should be piled in the yard.

• Residents should not be calling the snow removal contractors to come and plow the neighborhood. All concerns and requests should be directed to the Board of Directors
