How is snow removal handled on my cul-de-sac?

Public Works is responsible for plowing over 100 center lane miles of roadway in the Village. There are 197 cul-de-sacs in Hanover Park which are cleared by a contractor and take more time to plow and more difficult to clear (averaging 6-12 hours). Cul-de-sacs are the most difficult part of the community to keep clear due to the circular nature of the roadway and the small space available to put the snow.  Please have patience with the process as it often takes a very long time.  It is also very difficult not to disproportionately affect one home over other homes, but we make every effort to make sure that no one house gets disproportionately more snow in their driveway apron than others.
