Westmont, Illinois - Date Issued: December 29, 2020
The Village of Westmont takes pride in its snow removal operations and has the reputation of having the best plowed streets in DuPage County. The Public Works Department monitors incoming winter storms so that they can proactively address severe weather situations.
During snow removal operations, the first priority is keeping all main streets open for emergency vehicles and residential use. To help in this effort, residents and businesses are reminded that after an accumulation of two or more inches of snow, parking is prohibited on any street for a period of eight hours after the snow has stopped falling. If snow removal is still needed after the eight hour period, parking is prohibited until snow removal operations have been completed.
Also, when snow plows are clearing the roadways, some snow gets pushed back into driveways. Please make sure to not return this snow back into the street, but instead shovel snow to the parkways.
Westmont property owners are asked to clear sidewalks adjacent to their property at their earliest convenience following a snowfall. Landlords are responsible for keeping sidewalks, parking lots, and all common areas, including open stairwells, free from hazardous conditions at all times.
Residents are encouraged to help the Fire Department by shoveling out fire hydrants. Shoveling a three-foot perimeter around a hydrant and a path to the hydrant from the street will allow quick access in the event of an emergency.
Working together, we can make sure that our roads and sidewalks are safe for everyone.
