Snow removal season’s here in Avon
Avon, CO Colorado
AVON –With snow plow season underway, Avon’s public works department has a few informational tips for residents.
During storms, the department operates snow plows from 3 a.m. to 11 p.m. The department strives to make sure no road will go completely unplowed in any 24-hour period.
Plow trucks cannot stop or turn as readily as most vehicles. Please allow ample space for the snowplows to maneuver freely.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
When plowing is required, snow berms are created across driveways. Removal of this snow in driveways is the responsibility of the property owner.
Private snow plowing
Property owners should be aware that the placing, dumping or pushing of snow onto town streets or right-of-ways from adjacent properties is prohibited.
The town of Avon does provide some sidewalk clearing in the core area of town, along with bike path clearing for pedestrians. Property owners are responsible for sidewalks abutting or adjacent to their property. Any accumulation of snow must be removed within 24 hours after a storm.
