All sidewalks shall be kept in an ice- and snow-free condition at all times. No notice will be given. Tickets can be issued. It is suggested to wait until after the snow plows come through to shovel your sidewalks because you do have 24 hours after the weather event ceases. If the snow plow pushes snow back onto your sidewalks, you are expected to clear them. Please do not shovel snow onto the streets to prevent this from happening. Sometimes it is inevitable and please remember that clearing the snow is a team effort between the Township, State, residents and businesses. Below is a helpful diagram on how to clear your driveway. Thank you.
Please do not park on streets and cul-de-sacs during a snow event.
Our goal is to clear all streets within 18-24 hours after snow has stopped falling.
Plowing, blowing, or shoveling snow onto township streets is strictly prohibited.
Sidewalks must be cleared within 24 hours after snow/ice event. Do not pile snow between the street and sidewalk, it could be pushed back on the walk by the passing plow.
Note: State Roads are NOT plowed by East Manchester Township.
Part time snowplow drivers wanted. Must have valid drivers license. CDL not required, but a great option. Please contact the Township office to speak with the Highway Foreman.
