Winter Snow Season Reminders


WINTER SNOW SEASON


WINTER PARKING RESTRICTIONS

The Village’s Winter No Parking restrictions go into effect   

November 1st through April 1st. 

During this time no parking is allowed on any Village street between 2 am and 6am.  Vehicles parked on the street during this time will receive a parking ticket. 

The no parking time allows plow operators to remove snow safely and efficiently. 
 
SNOW EMERGENCIES
 
Declared snow emergencies may restrict parking and other activities. 

The Village cannot control major snow events.  However, there are occasions when the Village must declare a snow emergency.  During snow emergencies, parking on all village streets is prohibited.     During this time, vehicles may be ticketed and towed if contact    cannot be made with the owner.  Snow emergencies are posted on the Village’s website and  local media outlets.

SNOW PLOWING PRIORITIES

It is our goal to clear and salt all main roads before 6am. 

Depending on the type of storm, residential streets may take a little longer to get to, but should all be cleared in 7-10 hours. 

When there are major snowfalls, the objective switches to maintaining access on the main roads and getting at least one passable lane on each street for emergency vehicle access.  It may take several passes over several days to get all the snow cleared back.  As a result you may have to re-shovel driveways, and access to mail boxes will be delayed.  We appreciate your patience while we work to widen the driving and parking lanes.

Eagle Scout Receives Proclamation From Village Board

Nathan Cadieux of the Bellevue Area Boy Scout Troop 1173, completed horseshoe pits at Josten Park this past spring. The project was used to complete the requirements to achieve his Eagle Scout Rank.

The horseshoe pit project was no small task. Mr. Cadieux secured in-kind, as well as, cash donations from area businesses for supplies in the amount of $1,250. In addition, Nathan was responsible for recruiting and leading volunteers to complete the work. A total of 38 volunteers helped with the project, volunteering 285 hours.

The Village of Bellevue would like to thank Nathan, Troop 1173, all the volunteers and local business that supported this project.

Pictured is Nathan at the October 22nd board meeting where he was presented a Proclamation from Village President, Craig Beyl.
