NESSEL TOWNSHIP - SNOW REMOVAL POLICY

(October 29, 2020)
 
• Nessel Township’s goal is to have all roads passable within a reasonable amount of time after the snowfall has stopped.

• The Township does not assure a completely bare road surface and drivers are urged to use caution and drive with care.

• The legal speed limit may not be possible at all times.

SNOW REMOVAL PROCEDURES

Dispatching of Snowplow

Snowplow equipment will usually not be dispatched until after the snowfall has stopped and 3 inches of snow have accumulated.  During extended periods of snowfall, exceptions may be made.  The snowplow will not be sent out in situations that may be hazardous due to restricted visibility.

Operations

Clearing of roads will generally happen in three phases: 1) Making the road passable;  2) widening; 3) cleaning up.  Depending on the situation, more than one phase may be accomplished at one time.

Personal Properties

A. Mailboxes and fences damaged during snow removal will be evaluated case by case.  Only those mailboxes properly located and installed and damaged by actual contact with Contractor equipment will be repaired at Township expense.

B. Township residents are reminded that it is unlawful to plow snow from driveways onto or across public roads.  Piles of snow left on or near the road can freeze into a solid mass creating a hazardous situation for both vehicles and snowplows.  Accidents and damages caused by snow piles left in or on the side of the roadway may result in liability to the property owner.  Snow piles left on the side of a roadway increase the chances of drifting snow onto the road.  Vehicles left or parked in the Township road right-of-ways will be towed at the owner’s expense.  Residents are reminded to remove all obstructions from the Township road right-of-ways that includes boulders and any landscaping materials.

C. Nessel Township and Muddy Gap Hollow Inc. are not responsible for damages if any vehicles and equipment are in road right-of-way.

D. All residents of Nessel Township are responsible to clear their own driveways or hire a private contractor to plow their private property.

Call Michelle Meis (320 358 3251) or Betsy Rising (320 358 4017) for any road questions.
