10 Public Reminders

Here are 10 reminders that will help us all safe:

  1. Please give snowplows plenty of room to work.  Do not tailgate or pass the plows since they make frequent lane changes and stops.
  2. Vehicles parked on public right-of-way must be moved every 72 hours.  Storage of vehicles on public right-of-way is not permitted.
  3. Slow down when approaching all intersections and pedestrian crossings during snow and ice conditions.
  4. Remove all snow and ice from your vehicle before driving.
  5. Keep fire hydrants in front of your homes clear of snow and branches. 
  6. Trim tree limbs, on private property, away from street lights for nighttime safety.
  7. All snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks in front of your homes and businesses within 24 hours of accumulation.
  8. Please do not push snow from private property onto public right-of-way.  It makes it very difficult for our Public Works employees to keep the streets and parking spots clear of ice and snow.
  9. All dogs being walked on public property must be leashed and under physical control at all times.
  10. Annual dog registration licenses are required for all dogs that reside in Town.

Thank you for your assistance in keeping Basalt safe.
