Addison Township begins salting when the snow starts to accumulate and traffic safety is affected.

The Township has adopted a parking ban but relies on the cooperation of our residents.  There is also a County wide No Parking ban.  Please do not park on your street if snow is anticipated or has not yet been plowed.  Parking on cul-de-sacs, dead ends, turn-arounds and on the street should be avoided when plow trucks are out.  Parked cars in these areas prevent the plows from removing the snow properly and/or turning around and are subject to being towed at the owner’s expense.  Our crew does not intentionally “plow in” your drive nor aim for your mailbox.  Our snowplows are of the same side delivery as all other municipalities.  This is the fastest and most efficient means to remove snow from streets.  As a result, snow is discharged toward the road edges and inevitably into driveways.  If possible, delay the time you clear the driveway until the plows have cleared your street.

Occasionally heavy slush discharged from a plow will knock down a mailbox.  Most mailboxes, if properly installed, will withstand heavy slush.  The homeowner should periodically inspect and repair his mailbox in order to avoid it being damaged by heavy slush.  The Township will not be responsible for damage to improperly placed or neglected mailboxes.  If your mailbox meets specifications and is damaged as a result of our work, contact the Road District and we will replace it.
