TOWN OF WARREN
TO ALL PRIVATE PLOWING CONTRACTORS
Snow Plowing Onto Roadways: To all private snow plow contractors, please be advised that depositing snow by blowing or plowing onto the traveled way, shoulder, or sidewalk of a class 1, 2 or 3 town highway violates the Vermont Statutes Annotated in Title 19, Section 1105 and Title 23, Section 1126a. Depositing snow onto any highway results in increased maintenance costs and may result in a highway accident. When snow is blown or plowed across the highway, it may cause slippery conditions or snow berms that in turn could cause an accident. Private parties who violate this statute will be given a warning by letter from the Select Board. Further violations may result in the issuance of a traffic ticket which carries a $50 waiver penalty or civil action may be brought under Section 1105 which carries a fine not to exceed $1,000 plus costs.
Please be courteous and respectfully to our highway department crew, they are trying to do their jobs to keep the roads as safe as possible year-round.
The Warren Select Board
Raymond Weston, Road Foreman
