Snow Removal
Berks County > Municipalities > Borough of Kenhorst


BOROUGH OF KENHORST  

 

When the FORECAST is for 3 or more inches of snow, a Snow Emergency will be in effect.  This will allow all residents sufficient time prior to a significant snowfall to move vehicles from the Snow Emergency Routes (New Holland Road and S. Kenhorst Boulevard and Upland, High Boulevard and Columbia Avenue) and for vehicles parked on all other non-emergency routes to move to the odd side of the street or into their driveways.   

Once the Snow Stops - After the snow stops, intersections will be cleared and storm drains opened provided there is room to get equipment in safely.  Please be patient - the public works crew will work to clear all roads but the first priority is the snow emergency routes.  Curb to curb plowing will be done time and weather permitting.   

On Snow Emergency Routes Only – vehicles still parked on a Snow Emergency Route will be ticketed and possibly towed. 

Property owners are required to remove snow and ice from adjacent sidewalks within 12 hours after a storm and are asked to keep fire hydrants clear. Residents who cast snow onto the street will be cited, "No Exceptions".
