Snow Plowing and Salting

GOALS OF THE PROGRAM

The primary goal of the Village’s snow removal and ice control program is to maintain safe travel routes during and following snowstorms, as well as to restore mobility for the traveling public within a reasonable time frame following cessation of storm conditions. To accomplish this goal, the Public Works fleet is equipped with plows and computerized salt spreaders. Personnel are trained in the use of snow removal and salting equipment to ensure efficiency. Please call 630-391-7230 to report any concerns.

DURING A SNOWSTORM, WHEN SHOULD MY VEHICLE BE OFF THE VILLAGE’S STREETS?

Ordinance #344 states: “It shall be unlawful to park any vehicle on any public street within the Village at any time during or after a snowfall wherein two (2) or more inches of snow has fallen until such street has been plowed.”

WHEN WILL THE STREET (CUL-DE-SAC, DEAD END, EYEBROW, ETC) BE PLOWED IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE?

During a snow storm event, crews are dispatched to begin clearing streets according to the following priorities: First Priority Street Routes – Streets that lead directly onto state and county primary transportation arteries.

Second Priority Street Routes – Streets that lead directly onto first priority street routes and in-directly into primary transportation arteries.

Third Priority Street Routes – Streets that include dead-ends, cul-de-sacs, eyebrows, etc .
