Coastal Shores Calls for Harsh Winter Weather

The Town of York DPW would like to remind residents of winter storm operations information and tips.

When snow starts falling, we start treating major roads with rock salt and de-icing liquids. Once there’s about 2 inches of snow fall, we start plowing. First, we focus on major roadways and connectors to move traffic along before heading into residential areas.

Parking Bans

  • When a snow emergency has been declared, there will be a total parking ban on any and all public ways.

  • Alert banners will appear on the York Public Works homepage when parking bans and severe weather alerts are in effect.

Sidewalk Regulations

The Town of York sidewalk snow removal ordinance requires business owners to remove snow and ice from sidewalks abutting their property 12 hours following a winter storm, and residential owners to clear snow and ice abutting their property 18 hours following the end of a storm or when the City finishes snow removal operations, whichever is later.
