*Please remember that the final snow plow pass is not made until several hours after the
storm has concluded. Our snow plow drivers are directed to try and minimize the amount of
snow directed onto previously cleaned sidewalks and driveways, but it is often times
*For smaller storms residents may want to consider not clearing their driveways and
sidewalks until after our snow plow drivers have completed the final pass of their street, or
residents should recognize that they may need to clear their sidewalks and driveways more
than one time for larger snow and ice storms.
*For residents who use a contractor for snow removal, try to make arrangements with your
contractor to have sidewalks cleared after the end of the storm when street clearing operations
have been completed as to avoid multiple passes and charges from the contractor.
*Residents are also advised that those responsible for the maintenance of property with
sidewalks are required to clear their sidewalks within six hours of daylight following the
accumulation of snow. Those who do not clear their sidewalks may be fined accordingly.
*The New Britain Fire Department has asked residents to assist them by clearing fire
