Paddock Lake to begin removing snow piles

A Paddock Lake plow clears 61st Street

Paddock Lake has issued the following statement regarding ongoing snow removal efforts in the village:

In the days to come the Village Public Works crews will be widening the traffic lanes by pushing snow back on to shoulders of roads and sometimes beyond the shoulders. Inevitably the ends of driveways will be blocked with large piles of snow. The Village Board has determined that due to the large amount of snow, the Village Public Works crews will also be removing the snow piles at the end of your driveway that has been created by the street widening operations. Once the streets are widened the Village Public Works crews will begin removing the large piles of snow from intersection corners to improve traffic visibility. The Public Works crews will next proceed to sidewalk snow removal until these above listed operations are complete.

Please keep the following in mind as we all dig out from this snowstorm:

  • While driving be aware and watchful of school bus stops and children.
  • Check on neighbors.
  • Keep exhaust vents open and clear of snow.
  • If your home was built prior to 1980, and has 12 inches of snow on it, you may want to consider removing the snow from your roof. If doing this yourself a safe way to remove snow from a roof  is from the ground with a long handled tool or hire a roofing contractor to perform the work for you.

With electric power lines being weighted from the snow and ice isolated areas of the Village may experience power outages. This did happen during the blizzard. The Village hall will be opened to serve as a warming center. If your electric power is out after regular office hours you can call the Sheriff’s Department non-emergency telephone number 843-2371 and the Kenosha County dispatch alert one of the officials to open the Village Hall.
