Can I place driveway markers along my property, and what happens if the plow tears up my lawn?

Yes… Residents can use driveway markers to help our drivers know where the curb ends, and lawn begins.  PLEASE understand that we will not replace ones that get broken, AND PLEASE do not use channel posts, or any other metal objects in the right of way.  These heavy-duty markers can be dangerous if struck by motorists so please do NOT use those.  If we tear up the lawn in your immediate area, please call 250-4721 and give us your address.  We compile a list and come back in spring to make repairs.  We use quality seed and fresh topsoil.  We will not sod any damaged areas.  PLEASE understand we make mistakes.  Our operators are maneuvering an 8’ front plow and 9’ wing.  This is over 20’ of snow removal equipment.  Our target area is the concrete curb, which is 18” wide from front to back.  We need to get that close to have room for future snows and so that melting snow has a path to storm inlets.  Early season snow falls and warm winters often prevent frost from getting into the ground. This keeps shoulders extremely soft and vulnerable to damage.  We don’t like causing damage, but we do, we are sorry and appreciate your patience and understanding.
