Snow Removal

PrintEach Winter, Village roads are plowed and de-iced to maintain traffic by our own crews. The main streets are the priority with side streets being plowed secondarily.

Losantiville Avenue and Wiehe Road are designated “Snow Emergency Routes.” This means when Hamilton County/City of Cincinnati declares a “Snow Emergency,” all vehicles must be removed from these two streets. Citations and/or towing will result for vehicles left on these streets during a Snow Emergency (§351.15 – search “snow emergency.)

To avoid being plowed in, we recommend that you park vehicles in your driveway prior to and during a predicted snowfall. Since the snowplow can only move snow off to the side of the road, it may appear as though the plow is purposely blocking parked cars and driveways. This is not the case. Snow can become an inconvenience for everyone, so please be patient and courteous during difficult times.

Keeping Your Sidewalks Cleared of Ice & Snow

Residents and business owners are required to clear their sidewalks of snow and ice as necessary during the Winter. Golf Manor Ordinance §521.06 – search “snow” requires owners and occupants of buildings in the Village to keep sidewalks, curbs, and gutters in repair and free from snow, ice or any nuisance (ORC 723.011). The owner of any multiple family dwelling within the Village shall have removed all snow from driveways, parking areas, walkways or common areas within twenty-four hours after the end of a snowfall. A violation or failure to comply with this section shall be a minor misdemeanor and each day of such violation shall be a separate offense.

 

Snow Emergency levels are defined as:

Level 1: Roadways are hazardous because of blowing snow. Drivers are advised to proceed with caution.

Level 2: Roadways are hazardous because of blowing snowdrifts. Only those who feel it necessary to drive should be out on the roadway. Employees should contact their employers to see if they should report to work. If travel is necessary drivers should travel with extreme caution.

Level 3: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. Travel is prohibited unless absolutely necessary. Contact your employer to see if you are expected to work. Reckless or unnecessary driving may be cited as a misdemeanor – failure to comply with a lawful order – may lead to a $100.00 fine. If you are in an accident that causes an injury while driving illegally, you can be cited for a fourth degree misdemeanor.
