Winter Operations

Winter Parking Ordinance

The Winter parking ordinance takes place from November 1 to April 15, 12:00 AM to 8:00 AM. The purpose of this ordinance is to make plowing and salting of dedicated Town Streets safer and more effective and to cut the cost of snow removal while saving tax dollars. During this ordinance, there will be no parking on all town roads or the grass on rights-of-way. Failure to follow the rules of this ordinance can result in fines ranging from $25 – $100.

Sidewalk Snow Removal

The Town of Greece has eleven sidewalk routes which can take up to five hours to complete a single pass, depending on conditions. These routes cover approximately 500 miles of town sidewalks.

The Department of Public Works sidewalk snow removal period begins in November and concludes in April. For the 2023 – 2024 winter, the sidewalks located on the northern and eastern side of residential streets will be plowed.   Most main roads and vicinities around schools and shopping centers will be plowed on both sides of the street.

Mailbox Replacement Policy

In the event a mailbox and/or post is damaged or displaced as a result of Town of Greece plowing operations, the Town will replace the damaged mailbox and/or post with a standard mailbox and wooden post at no cost to the resident. If the resident rejects the mailbox offered, the Town of Greece will reimburse the resident up to $35 upon submission of original receipt as proof of purchase.

Contact the Department of Public Works at 225-4590 to report a damaged mailbox and please specify at that time if you would like the town to replace the mailbox/post with our in-stock materials or if you would instead prefer to request the up to $35 voucher to reimburse your own purchase and installation of a new mailbox/post. DPW staff will assist you with the reimbursement procedure.
