Highway Department Information for Winter, 2012/2013:
Mailboxes: We will repair or replace mailboxes and posts, only if after inspection from the Highway Dept., deemed damaged by our plows. We do not repair them from snow spray that occurs occasionally from the weight of the snow. Mailbox replacement is a courtesy performed by the Town Highway Department. We are not legally responsible for damage occurred while snow plowing. We do not repair “special” mailboxes. A damaged box will be replaced with a standard metal mailbox. (If you have a custom made or “special” mailbox, you may consider replacing it for the winter season with a standard mailbox.) Posts are replaced with a pressure treated wood post. Please be aware of the set-back installation where snow removal may be a problem suggested by the Postal Service.
No Parking: There is No Parking on the Town of Cicero Highways from Nov. 15th to April 15th, 1:00 am-8:00 am. Any vehicle parked or abandoned on any highway within the Town during these dates and times, or during a snowstorm which affects that portion of the public highway upon which said vehicle is parked or abandoned, or hindering snow removal at any time, said vehicle will be removed by the Town Superintendent of Highways or a member of the Town of Cicero Police Department. Traffic & Vehicle Law 60.41
Remove All Portable Basketball Hoops. It is illegal to have portable basketball hoops on the highway right-of-way. They are not to be placed at roadside at any time. Residents will be responsible for any damages and may be ticketed.
Please use caution when driving your vehicle towards approaching snowplows, in the process of snow removal or ice control. Slow down and give the snowplow crew as much room as possible. Please be aware that on some roads our plows do backup to plow the other side of the road. Stay back approx. 100 feet if possible.
Snow Tunnels – Nothing is more tragic than a child being hit by a snowplow! Snow tunnels in road side snow banks will be destroyed by the highway workers! They are extremely dangerous, as plow drivers cannot see children playing inside them. If you have one, please knock them down, and forbid your children from building near roadways. Warn them of the dangers!
It is illegal to plow or deposit snow in or across the roadways. You will be ticketed and liable for any injuries occurred while snow was left in roadway and caused an accident.
