The Plain Township Highway Department prides itself on keeping your roads safe and clear during the winter months. However, we need your help to do our jobs to the best of our abilities. Anytime there is a snowfall and the snow exceeds 2 inches, vehicles cannot be parked in the street. A snow ban is in effect by the Board of Trustees and it is illegal to park in the street. It creates a dangerous situation for our snow plows and our emergency medical crews.
Please be aware that vehicles parked in the street will be ticketed by the Sheriff's Office or towed by the Sheriff's Office or Highway Department at the owners' expense. Many streets have signs posted prohibiting parking during the snow ban; however, signs are not necessary on every street for the snow ban to be in effect.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. We look forward to a safe winter season.
