2015 ROAD PLOWING NOTICE TO RESIDENTS AND CONTRACTORS

SUMMIT COUNTY SERVICE AREA # 3

NOTICE

Re: Snow Removal and Plowing by Property Owners and/or Their Contractors

 

DearSilver Creek Resident and Neighbor:

 

We need your help to reduce our costs for road maintenance and repairs. As we prepare for the winter season, please be aware that residents/property owners and contractors who are hired by property owners are not allowed to push or pile snow on or across roads.  Summit County Ordinance#346, Section 7-3-5 states that it is unlawful for any person to deposit, haul,blow, push, or otherwise deposit accumulated snow within the traveled roadway.The traveled way shall be defined as the width of the paved or graveled surfaceplus ten additional feet on either side of the surface.  Furthermore, Section 7-3-4 states that aproperty owner shall confine the accumulated snow to their premises or toanother with permission.

There are many reasons why this ordinance is in place including safety reasons and damage to roads. The Service Area has noted much of the damage to roads occurs at driveway locations caused by pushing the snow across the roads. If this practice continues, the Service Area will require residents to repair damage caused by pushing snow across roads or reimburses the Service Area for repairing the road. Please review the enclosed Ordinance for more informationabout Snow Removal. You may also find the Ordinance here: http://www.co.summit.ut.us/DocumentCenter/View/186.

 

Please keep this in mind and inform your plowing contractors. Wewant to work with you to ensure District funds are used efficiently andeffectively. We appreciate your help and attention to this matter.

Ifyou have questions, concerns and/or comments, please contact:
