Generally our snow removal begins when at least 2 inches of snow
is on the road. On certain occasions we may be out earlier
but 2 inches is usually our starting point. While plowing,
we'll also be spreading salt to help prevent the
roadways from freezing. We continue to plow the roads until
the snow storm has ended.
The Batavia Township does not have a parking ban but the state
does. The snow that is not removed from cars parked on
the road will eventually turn to ice and can be very
dangerous. We ask for your cooperation by keeping your cars
off the street until the storm has passed and your street has
been plowed and widened. By doing this you will save yourself
from receiving tickets and/or towing charges.
Our plow truck drivers do not intentionally plow snow into your
driveways or towards you mailboxes. The snowplows discharge
snow on the curbside of the road and sometimes into your
driveway. We ask that you please delay cleaning out the end
of your driveway until your street has been plowed. This will
prevent you from having to shovel numerous times.
It is a violation of
Illinois Law to plow, push, blow or in
anyway place snow upon a public road from adjoining property.
Please shovel driveway ends to the sides. If you plow into
the roadway you are liable for all incidents, which may
Sometimes when wet & heavy snow is discharged from the
plow it may knock down a mailbox. The township will only
replace mailboxes with the standard mailbox and a 4x4 wooden post,
or we will reimburse the resident $25.00 towards a new one.
