SNOW IS IN THE FORECAST!
Information about snow removal in Northville Township

Sn ow is finally in the forecast! Winter brings cold weather, snow days and hazardous road conditions. Northville Township wants you to be informed about the following snow-related topics:


  • Northville Township does not plow streets; this is the responsibility of Wayne County or your own Homeowner's Association by contract.
  • The Township only salts sidewalks and pathways on township-owned property; Wayne County Roads or your HOA contractor salts streets.
  • Residents and businesses should try to remove snow and ice from the adjacent sidewalks within 24 hours of a snow/ice event.
  • Northville Township does not issue "Snow Emergencies" but be aware when an event is happening; move your car off the streets when possible to aid in clearing roads. If a "Snow Emergency" does occur, it would be issued by Wayne County.

Wayne County is trying to keep residents informed of their response to weather- related incidents. You can download their Wayne County Connect App that gives you general information, ways to contact them/report road incidents and also view where the trucks are out and about cleaning the streets.

HELP KEEP OUR COMMUNITY SAFE!
Our Fire Department needs your help!
Maintaining clear access to all fire hydrants is of the utmost importance. Increasing snowfalls create a variety of issues regarding our ability to locate and access fire hydrants in a quick and efficient manner. If you or your neighbor have a fire hydrant nearby, please take the time to clear the hydrant of any snow that accumulates around it.


Please attempt to clear at least three (3) feet in all directions so that emergency personel can quickly gain access to a water supply during a fire emergency. Each hydrant is equipped with two (2) outlets that allow fire hoses to be connected. Please ensure that these outlets are also cleared to the street.

If you are a member of a homeowners association, apartment or condo complex or own or operate a business in the Township, please contact your private contractors or property maintenance companies to make sure to keep all hydrants clear and accessible. A blocked fire hydrant will delay the effectiveness of our fire suppression efforts. Thanks in advance for your assistance in keeping our community safe!
