Snow Ordinance Notice 2020-2021

November 12, 2020

The Town of Red Hook Highway Department would like to remind residents of the Town-wide Snow Ordinance in effect during the winter season. Town law prohibits parking on town roads from November 15th until April 1st between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. Parking on the street at any time during a storm is an obstruction to snow removal and prevents employees from thoroughly removing the snow.

Residents living along town roads should remove basketball hoops or any other roadside obstacles from the town-maintained right-of-way in preparation for the winter snow-plowing season. The Highway Department will not be responsible for damage to anything left in the right-of-way. Please do not plow, shovel or otherwise put snow into the streets. 

It is our job to keep the roads safe. We appreciate your co-operation in these matters as we look forward to spring.
