Preparing for Winter

Public Works Prepares For WinterDSC_9546

Snow Regulations:
When it snows, Public Works hits the streets.
The Public Works Department begins its task of keeping 18 miles of streets in the Village of Rosemont, and all Village owned properties and garage's cleared of ice and snow accumulation. As snow removal and ice control operations begin, drivers will first clear the arterial roadways. Residents are advised to wait until after the plows have moved the snow to the curb before attempting to clean their driveway apron. An additional crew is called in to clear all sidewalks throughout the Village.

Parking Restrictions:
During winter snow fall, parking is not allowed on Village streets unless special permission is granted through the Rosemont Public Safety Department. If parking is granted, vehicles are only allowed to be parked on one side of the street. This allows our snow removal equipment to clear Village streets in a timely and safe manner.
Village Ordinance 21-49-(a) (12) parking prohibited by sign Fine $25.00.
For street parking permission call the Rosemont Public Safety Department, 911 center at 847-823-1134.

Reminders &Tips:
Snow Deposits on Streets:
Snow cleared from private areas may not be deposited on public walks or streets. Snow cleared from walks or drives may not be deposited in the streets. These practices may result in hazardous conditions. Remind children that when building snow forts, they need to remain on private property and should not build snow forts on parkways adjacent to streets. This is for their own safety, and the safety of our Snow Removal crews.

Keeping Your Driveway Clear:
When clearing snow from your driveway, shovel snow in the direction of traffic, and try to make a pocket on the opposite side of the driveway, as shown. By doing so, snow that is plowed will be dumped into that pocket and not back on your driveway.
