Snow Rules and Regulations

    1. In accordance with Township policy, snow plowing will commence at the conclusion of the snow storm.
    1. The Association’s contractor will pass through the courts so vehicles can get into and out of the courts as the contract stipulates in accordance to Township policy.
    1. Vehicle owners must dig out and remove their vehicles from their parking spaces after the courts are plowed.
    1. After the snowfall stops, if the total accumulation exceeds four (4) inches, and after vehicles are removed from parking spaces, the Association’s contractor will clear the snow from the empty parking spaces.
    1. If equipment (such as plows and front end loaders/back hoes) and suitable locations to deposit the snow in are available, then the Association’s contractor will return one (1) time the day after a snow fall for a final clearing of the snow.

If vehicle owners do not promptly remove their vehicles from parking spaces after a snow fall has ended, or if the vehicle owners do not remove their vehicles from parking spaces before the Association’s contractor returns to clear snow the day after a snow fall, then Association’s contractor will not clear the snow; the vehicle owners will have to clear the snow from the parking space themselves.
