Snow Removal

Over the last few days, the Liberty Lakes Condominium Association Board has received a few questions about snow removal services, so we thought this would be a good time to remind the community of how our snow removal contract works.

The past couple weeks have seen quite a few snowfalls in the area. However, most of these snowfalls have been just below the 2-inches required for our contractor to provide snow removal service. Until the required 2-inches of snowfall is met, it is up to the homeowner to clear their driveway. Additionally, we are our contract for snow removal gives us 12 snow removals (or “pushes”) for this season. Any additional pushes we may need after the contracted 12 would cost the Association additional money, so the Association Board tries to be cognizant of that when having the contractor come out for snow removal.

So, with this latest snowstorm over the past 48 or so hours, we have obviously reached the 2-inch limit required for snow removal several times. The contractor was out removing snow in the early morning hours of New Year’s Day as we had reached the 2-inch requirement that night.  The contractor was out again last night, as 2-inches had fallen since they were last out to clear snow. As this storm moves out of the area, and the lake effect snow abates today, we have accumulated enough snow to trigger a another (hopefully final) clearing of snow. That will likely occur after the noon hour, and continue on into the afternoon. Once the firelanes, driveways, and sidewalks are cleared of snow, they will also be salted.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact the Liberty Lakes Condominium Association Board via the contact page.

Happy New Year!
