Owners are responsible for clearing their own sidewalks,
porches, patios and decks. Owners are also responsible for clearing their own cars, and parking spaces. Every snowfall, storm or ice event is unique. The board appointed contact
and the contractor confer to discuss each storm event, to assure the best application and the most cost effective methods are employed. In most storm events, the following snow removal
procedure is followed:
- The first pass of the plow will remove snow from the roadways in a driven pathway, to allow access for emergency vehicles, and
entry or exit from the courts. This may be done with a larger plow to move the most volume of snow as quickly as possible
- The second pass of the plow, will clear more of the plowed pathway, begin to clear sharp angles at lot corners, back plow out areas
where vehicles are not parked, and clear closer to the rear of parked vehicles
- During heavier snowfall, the contractor may use bobcats to clear as many spaces as possible. The first pass of the bobcat is
with the snow pusher bucket, to aid in clearing snow closer to the rear of parked vehicles. This bucket pushes a larger volume of snow most efficiently, and cannot clear individual spaces, only
larger areas. The second pass with the bobcat, will be with the normal bucket, which allows scoop and removal from spaces. The contractor will clear spaces where cars have been
moved, while they are in the court. When you hear the backup beepers, its time to move your cars.
- Parking spaces will NOT be hand shoveled by the contractor’s crew. Spaces are cleared by use of the bobcats, only if
the storm size dictates, and the owners come out to move their vehicles, while they are in the court with the bucket.
