Here's a simple checklist as the winter season begins:

* If you have a portable basketball net, now is the time to start making arrangements to move it away from the street so it does not interfere with snow plows. This is just one minor thing residents can do to make the Township's job a little easier in performing winter maintenance.

* Make sure your house address number is positioned high enough to be viewed from the street. Also make sure the address sign is kept visible if there is a snow accumulation.

* Keeping sidewalks safe is an important winter concern. Please clear snow, sleet and ice from sidewalks in front of your property no more than 24 hours after a storm.

* Please do not shovel, blow or plow the snow from your driveway and/or sidewalks into the street.

* Snow Emergencies are announced on WFMZ and this website. Also: Click here for a full guide to preparing for winter emergencies.
