In a snow emergency, Wayne County has established priorities for snow removal throughout the County. The first roads to be cleared are the expressways. Second to be cleaned are the main roads (Telegraph, Plymouth, Grand River and the Mile Roads etc…). Third to be cleaned are the school bus routes as designated by the school districts. Lastly, residential streets are plowed (if four or more inches of snow are present). Remember, the county cannot plow the street if cars are parked on them.
What should you do when it snows in Redford Township?
PARKING – Don’t park in the streets until your street has been cleared of snow from curb to curb for a length of two block. If you do, you are subject to citations and possible towing of your vehicle.
SIDEWALKS – Residential sidewalks must be cleared of snow within 72 hours of snowfall. Commercial sidewalks must be cleared of snow within 24 hours of snowfall.
Sec. 82-4. Traffic and parking on streets during snow emergency situations.
Parking shall be prohibited under the following conditions:
- Whenever snow or ice has accumulated to a depth of five inches or more on any street within the township, a parking prohibition shall automatically go into effect on all streets within the township.
- Whenever the director of public services finds on the basis of falling snow, sleet or freezing rain, or on the basis of a forecast by the U.S. Weather Bureau or other weather conditions make it necessary that parking on township streets be prohibited or restricted for snow plowing or other purposes, the director of public services shall cause to be put in effect a parking prohibition on all township streets as necessary by publically declaring a snow emergency and arranging for the information relating to the parking prohibition to be disseminated through one or more of the following methods: radio stations, television stations, cable television, newspapers, automated telephone systems, the official township website, or outdoor early warning siren system.
- Once in effect, a prohibition under this section shall remain in effect until terminated by announcement of the director of public services in accordance with this article, except that any street area which has become clear of snow and ice from curb to curb for length thereof lying between two successive street intersections shall be automatically excluded therefrom.
- While the prohibition is in effect, no person shall park or allow to remain parked any vehicle on any street to which it applies. However, nothing in this section shall be construed to permit parking at any time or place where it is forbidden by any other provision of law.
- Whenever the county issues a red alert in emergency situations.
Any person who shall violate any of the provisions of this section, whether as owner, or as clerk, agent, servant or employee, shall be guilty of a municipal civil infraction and upon being found responsible in any court of competent jurisdiction be fined $80.00 provided that such fine shall be reduced to $40.00 if paid within two business days.
Any vehicle parked contrary to the prohibitions of this ordinance, or any vehicle abandoned on any street during a declared snow emergency, may be cited by the police department for prohibited parking and may be towed away at the risk and expense of the owner of the vehicle by an authorized employee or agent of the department of public services or the police department.
(Ord. No. 207, §§ I, II, 3-1-82; Ord. No. 315, § 1, 3-22-11)
Snow removal from sidewalks
Sec. 74-40. Removal of snow and ice required.
- The occupant of every lot or parcel of land adjoining any sidewalk, or the owner of such lot or parcel of land if unoccupied, shall be responsible for clearing ice or snow from sidewalks adjoining such lot or parcel of land within 24 hours of its accumulation for the commercial districts, and within 72 hours for the residential districts.
- A person who violates this section is responsible for a municipal civil infraction.
- The fine for the first violation occurring during a given October 1 through May 1 period shall be $25.00. Each day that a violation continues shall be a separate infraction. For each additional day that such infraction occurs, or for a separate subsequent violation of this section, the fine shall be $50.00.
- A continuing violation of this section shall be considered a nuisance per se and an immediate threat to the health and safety of the public and the township may take appropriate action to abate the nuisance and place a lien for the cost of the abatement against the property.
