The Town of Clayton would like to remind residents of the snow emergency route and snow removal guidelines for the town.

Snow Removal

Snow removal of or by the side of which shall be a sidewalk, pavement, or walkway, to permit or allow snow to remain thereon for a longer period than 48 hours after it has ceased snowing.

It shall be unlawful for any resident to the Town of Clayton to throw or pile snow into any roadway or intersection within the town limits of Clayton so as to cause any visual or physical obstruction.

It shall be the duty of the police department of the town to patrol the streets of the town and to issue warrants or summons in connection with the violation. Any violation of this ordinance shall be punishable by a fine of $50 for the first offense and $100 for each subsequent offense.

Snow Emergency Routes

The town also has certain distinctions on where residents can park during times of snowfall. Vehicle owners are required to move their parked vehicles off of streets designs as "snow emergency routes" after one hour of continuous snowfall.

Residents that live on the odd side of Main Street, Smyrna Avenue, West Street, Washington Avenue, Clayton Avenue and Reed Street have to move their vehicle after one hour of continuous snowfall. People that live on the even side of Highland Avenue and Rodney Street will have to do the same.

During these times, there will be no parking on the road in Huntington Mills, Providence Crossing, Town & Country, and Old Country Farm because people have driveways.
