SNOW REMOVAL: It is the Community Association's policy to keep all roads which it maintains as clear and safe as possible during periods of ice and snow in the winter months. To this end, the association has contracted with a local person to do this work.
Individual residents may also arrange to have their entranceways and drives cleared at their own expense by the same contractor if they wish. It should be understood that the contractor's responsibility is to clear all of the community's roads first, after which he will undertake work on private driveways as expeditiously as he can.
