Public Works is also responsible for maintaining safe streets during the winter months. Along with battling the elements, plow drivers often have to navigate crowded streets and slick conditions in an effort to prepare Berkeley roadways for the demands of road travelers. Residents should use these key points to prepare for winter in Berkeley:
Remember, that vehicles must be cleared from Village streets when a snowfall of 2 inches or more is present or expected. It is unlawful for the operator of a motor vehicle to stop, stand or park a motor vehicle on any street or thoroughfare in the Village after a snowfall which has resulted in a ground accumulation of snow of two inches (2”) or more until such time as the Village has completed the plowing and clearance of said snow. Failure to do so will result in a fine as defined in the ordinance. This Village-wide parking regulation will assist the Public Works Department in clearing the streets as soon as possible and will help to make travel safer for all residents.
