Why is snow plowed into my driveway?

This is an unfortunate side effect of plowing all streets in the City. All snow must be plowed from the center of the street to the curb, and as a result driveways get blocked with the snow from the plow. Though it is an acknowledged inconvenience, curbside discharge of snow is a necessary trade-off for initiating a rapid response for snow removal service for our residents. It is the property owner’s responsibility to clear the snow from the bottom of their driveway.
