The City of Dublin offers the following instructions and tips for snow removal on your property.
Residents can assist the snow plowing process in several ways.
(The following information was obtained from the City of Dublin):
Do not shovel or plow snow into City streets.
Do not shovel or plow snow into driveway aprons.
Do not shovel or plow snow around fire hydrants or mailboxes.
Keep distance from the snow plows.
Keep children away from snow plows
Remove parked cars from the street.
Do not attempt to pass a snow plow.
Per the city, residents are required to keep their sidewalks, curbs and
gutters in repair and free of snow, ice, debris and obstructions.
Depositing snow or ice on any public sidewalk, street,
bike path, road or highway is not permitted.
The city recommends that when shoveling a driveway, place as much snow as possible
from the driveway apron on the “downstream” side
(left side of apron as you are standing at the street looking up the driveway).
This reduces the amount of snow that the plow will catch and
push back into the driveway apron as it passes.
