- Please follow signage in regards to parking as it changes throughout the year
- During times of predicted snow, park vehicles on West & South sides of the street allowing the snow to be cleared to the curb. An alert via SWIFT 911 Notification system will advise when its time to move your vehicle to the East & North side of the street. This will allow the Avon Public Works to efficiently clear the snow from the roadway, thank you for your cooperation.
- Sidewalks should be cleared as soon as possible after a storm. Refrain from throwing snow back into the road and lane after it has been cleared. 142-16: It is the responsibility of the Owner or Tenant of a residence to remove the snow from the sidewalks. If the sidewalks are icy, it is the owner/tenant’s responsibility to put sand or salt down on the ice.
- According to the BOCA National Property Maintenance Code, all residences must have address numbers on them which are visible from the street. This will help expedite locating your residence in an emergency.
