Winter Weather: Street Parking and Snow Removal
The Roselle Public Works Department's primary objective during the winter storm season is to perform snow removal and ice control operations. While Public Works is responsible for plowing most Roselle streets, state and county agencies handle most of the main roads running through Roselle (Lake Street, Gary Avenue, Irving Park Road, Roselle Road, Nerge Road). Learn more about snow plow procedures or report streets in need of salt or plowing.
Parking is prohibited on ALL streets when there is a snowfall of 2 inches or more. It is strongly recommended that when a winter storm has been forecast, no vehicle should be parked on the street to avoid emergency parking restrictions on all Village streets. A parking prohibition shall automatically go into effect on all streets after an accumulation of snow and ice of 2 inches or more. Violations are subject to receiving a $35.00 parking ticket, as well as to having their vehicles towed at owner's expense.
With your assistance and cooperation, the Village can deliver the highest level of snow and ice control service in a safe and quick manner for our community. The Village of Roselle encourages all residents to clear snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to your property. Shoveling, dumping, plowing and blowing snow onto streets and public sidewalks is a violation of local ordinances. Snow that is re-deposited on Village streets and sidewalks can cause hazardous conditions for both motorists and pedestrians. Please clear the sidewalks of snow, especially for children walking to school, and clear snow around fire hydrants so they are visible for firefighters.
Shoveling tip: shovel snow with the direction of traffic and try to make a pocket on the opposite side of the driveway. By doing so, snow that is plowed by trucks will be dumped into that pocket and is less likely to be plowed back onto driveway aprons. Visit the Winter Storm Preparedness Center on the University of Illinois Extension-Urban Program website for more snow-related health and safety information.
