WINTER IS HERE! And here are some hints
1. Remember, snow removal does not happen unless there is 2"
of snow or more and snow has stopped. This is because it does not
make economic sense to pay for show removal if it is still
snowing, just to have to pay them again a few hours later to redo
it. Only exception would be is if a MAJOR snow fall of 8" or more
and snowing for longer than 24 hours. At that point plows will
come through and clear main dives only, once it stops snowing the
clean up will be done.
2. in order to plow correctly your cars MUST be removed
from parking space. Your car isn't moved, your space and possibly
those next to you won't get
3. the snow removal company does not work for us ONLY. They
have many accounts. Sometimes we will be first, sometimes last.
PLEASE BE PATIENT
4. REMOVE YOUR HOSES!
If left on, you risk having a pipe burst.
And water pipes are not village or association responsibility, ITS
5. Space heaters,
While nice they pose a fire
hazard, PLEASE BE CAREFUL with these. Keep them far away from
6. DO NOT RUN CARS IN GARAGES!
I can not stress
enough the hazards with this, Not only is it a fire hazard, but
the fumes can also get into not only your garage or unit, but the
entire building! If your going to warm up your car, pull it out of
the garage and warm it outside. If we see cars warming in garages
YOU WILL get a violation no if, ands, or buts.
It is also a LAW that cars MAY NOT be left running UNATTENDED! It
car is running you must either be IN it, or cleaning it off.
While we would LOVE to be able to afford to salt all the sidewalks
and drives each time it snows, It is not financially possible. The
cost for the salt itself and especially the labor is VERY HIGH, so
we need to use this ONLY when absolutely necessary.
That said, we have had one 5 gallon bucket of ice melt delivered
to each building. It is in most cases outside of either the A or F
unit of each building.
If you need to use some, feel free, but this ice melt is VERY
CONCENTRATED! So PLEASE use it sparingly. It is also VERY
