Winter officially began on December 21, and that means it is time to get ready for the snow, slush, and ice. When winter weather arrives, the SoHo Broadway Clean Team hits the streets ready to shovel crosswalks, bus stops, catch basins and fire hydrants. However, keeping SoHo Broadway passable is a team effort that involves everyone.
Property owners and businesses are again reminded that they must also keep their sidewalks clear of snow and ice. Recently, the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) has posted a useful guide listing the snow removal responsibilities of homeowners, property managers, businesses, and residents along with a SnowFAQ2016 with information on DSNY’s snow removal efforts when winter weather hits.
For those who more information on severe weather, all winter weather information and information about the City’s response to any winter storm can be found by visiting the City’s Severe Weather website at www.nyc.gov/severeweather or by calling 311. New Yorkers are also encouraged to sign up for the Notify NYC, the City’s free emergency notification system.
