With the possibility of a weekend snowstorm on the horizon (and forecasters wobbling back and forth between several different potential scenarios), local officials snow removal reminders for residents and property owners at Hellertown Borough Council’s meeting Tuesday night.
Council vice president Phil Weber–who presided over the meeting–reminded residents to shovel snow from around fire hydrants, so they remain accessible in the event of an emergency. And public works director Tom Henshaw asked residents who have off-street parking to use it if possible, to help facilitate snow-plowing.
In the event of a snow emergency declaration, cars have to be removed from the following Hellertown streets, which are designated snow emergency routes:
- Front Street from Sycamore Street to Walnut Street
- Main Street from I-78 to Polk Valley Road
- Easton Road from Cherry Lane to Main Street
- Northampton Street from Easton Road to Walnut Street
- Rentzheimer Drive from New York Avenue to Walnut Street
- Tobias Drive from Durham Street to Walnut Street
- Constitution Avenue from Durham Street to Walnut Street
- Willow Road from Durham Street to Constitution Avenue
- Cherry Lane from Main Street to Easton Road
- Wagner Avenue from Main Street to Zimpfer Lane
- High Street from R.R. Bridge to Easton Road
- Linden Avenue from Main Street to Silver Creek Country Club entrance
- Sycamore Street from Front Street to Main Street
- Depot Street from Front Street to Main Street
- Depot Street from Easton Road to Durham Street
- Water Street from the Saucon Creek bridge to Rentzheimer Drive
- Penn Street from Main Street to Delaware Avenue
- Durham Street from Delaware Avenue to the borough line
- Magnolia Road from Front Street to Willow Road
- Walnut Street from the borough line to Constitution Avenue
Borough zoning and codes enforcement officer Kris Russo also reminded property owners that they have 24 hours following an accumulating snowfall to shovel their sidewalks.
