Miscellaneous Snow Information
In order to avoid damage to curbside mailboxes, the City has established an ordinance and specifications that conform to Federal and State Postal Service regulations for the installation of these mailboxes. If your mailbox is damaged and it conforms to the ordinance, City crews will attempt to make temporary repairs to ensure mail delivery until such time permanent repairs can be performed.
Snow in front of curbside mailboxes is the responsibility of the homeowner to remove and to provide access to the mailbox for mail delivery. It is not the City’s responsibility to clear snow from in front of the curbside mailboxes.
Damage to Grass
Damage to parkway grass and sod resulting from snow removal operations will be repaired in the spring when pulverized dirt is available. To help City crews to minimize plow damage, those residents that live in cul-de-sacs, on corners, and curvilinear streets without curbs, or have low back curbs, may place a reflector at or near the curbline.
Temporary/portable or permanently installed basketball hoop systems should not be placed on the City’s right of way (parkway) or near the curb or edge of pavement. These items protrude into the path of snow removal equipment and may make contact with the snow removal equipment, either causing damages to the snow removal equipment or to the basketball hoop system.
The City strongly recommends that basketball hoops be removed from the parkway prior to the beginning of the winter season. The City will not be responsible for any damage caused to these systems during snow removal operations.
Clearing of Sidewalks
The City of Geneva encourages all residents to clear snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to your property in order to help students, walkers, joggers, commuters, shoppers and other pedestrians to travel safely.
