POST SNOWSTORM OF 2016 – TIPS & DPW FOLLOW-UP

POST SNOWSTORM – TIPS & DPW FOLLOW-UP

The major snowstorm of 2016 is over, but the Department of  Public Works (DPW) is continuing their efforts to clear the Township streets.

DPW crews will be out on Township streets continuing to plow areas where cars were parked and are now dug-out and the cars are now moved.  DPW can plow the area since the cars have been moved.  Please try to remove your vehicle from the streets so the DPW can continue to push the snow off of Township streets.   Remember for all snowstorms, if possible, please try to keep vehicles off the streets so plows can more efficiently remove the snow.

TIP:  Remember to remove additional snow to the right of the driveway, as you face the driveway, when shoveling or snow blowing your driveway .  This will help snow plows from pushing all of the snow back across your driveway.

DON’T FORGET YOUR FIRE HYDRANTS!

Please remember to dig out the fire hydrant in front of your home or business.  The diagram below depicts how you should shovel out the snow around a fire hydrant or standpipe.

HISTORY GROUP BEING FORMED!!

The Township is interested in individuals who are interested in Alsace Township’s history for the generations to come!

Alsace Township is in the process of having gatherings to collect historical photos of the Township to create a photo history of this wonderful Township. If you do not have any photos, that is OK too! We also need people who can provide information about the Township and its history.  Before the “old stories” are gone and photos faded, we want to capture Alsace’s wonderful history for the future!  So, if you have a piece of history to share, please join us as we create this new “History Group”.  Perhaps one of you might even come up with a good name for the group!

If you are one of these dedicated, interesting people, call the Township at 610-929-5324 and leave your name and number.  You can also email the Township at alsacetwp@comcast.net with your contact information.  We will have our first meeting when we have enough interested residents.  Bring your ideas and photos!
