Randall bans pushing snow onto roads

snow shovel_optFor some of us, the start of the snow removal season is still too terrible to contemplate.

But snow was on the minds of the Randall Town Board Thursday night as they passed an ordinance banning the pushing of snow from private property onto roads and town-owned property.

Supervisor Randy Kaskin explained that residents pushing snow from driveways and walks into the street or across streets has become a problem. The increased snow in the street makes clearing the street more difficult for the town’s plowing contractor and reduces the available space for snow to be moved into by plow trucks.

“We’re trying to get them to stop piling snow in the road or across the road,” Kaskin said.

A first offense penalty of between $25 and $500 was set.

The new ordinance was approved unanimously.

    With two county plow drivers on the board , you would think we would get better service from the county but no such luck. I WONDER if I could bill the Town for non performance of snow removal?

    To Randall taxpayers , After 5:00 pm and weekends those drivers are making time and a half that comes out of your wallet. Make sure they earn it. Don’t bother Bob S, he’s too busy polishing brass.
