Snowfall Forecast: A swath of 4 to 9 inches of snow is expected to fall across most of northern Illinois and northwestern Indiana with the highest amounts across the Chicago metropolitan area. Gusty winds will also lead to some blowing snow, especially after sunset Saturday.
The Village’s Public Works Department is prepared for snow and is able to effectively clear Deerfield’s 70 center-line miles of roadway quickly to make safe travel possible for all who use our streets. To assist your neighbors and Village staff this winter, please remember the following:
- Keep vehicles off the street assists plows and salt trucks in clearing the streets more effectively.
- Vehicles cannot be parked on the street for 24 hours after two inches of snow have fallen, per Village ordinance.
- By Village ordinance, you may not deposit snow from your property onto the street or sidewalk. This can hinder safe
passage of vehicles and pedestrians and make it harder for Village plow crews to keep streets clear. If using a snow removal service, please instruct contractors to abide by Village regulations.
- Please be a good neighbor and shovel and clear the sidewalks in front of your home for pedestrian safety.
Remember to shovel an extra area on your driveway apron or parkway for your refuse and recycling bins to be picked up by Lakeshore Recycling.
