Craig Mabius: Businesses on Route 9 need to follow snow removal rules

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

With the recent snowstorm I again observed that the sidewalks and especially the crosswalks were unplowed. the sidewalks did eventually get plowed, but piles of snow at the crosswalks pose a dangerous situation for handicapped residents, as well as individuals who need to cross the dangerous Route 9.

At one point near the Stop & Shop entrance, there is a vacant lot that remained unplowed until it warmed up. I would hope the town managers notify the businesses along Route 9 and enforce each town’s bylaws regarding snow removal, as a courtesy to people needing this access, as well as to each town’s liability and safety responsibilities.
