As I sat down to write this, I glanced at the weekly weather forecast for our area, and while of course it is subject to inaccuracy this far out, it looks like Tuesday or Wednesday we might be subjected to our first winter storm. So, even if if the prognosticators are wrong, let's talk about SNOW!!
Every year I like to remind everyone to think ahead about what their plans are for snow removal. Even this year, when you might be stuck at home for days straight, it's important to have your driveway and walkway plowed/shoveled, in case you do have to get out (or someone has to get in). And remember that if you have a public sidewalk in front of your property, you are legally required to have that cleared within 24 hours of a snowstorm.
If you use a landscaper during the year please reach out to them NOW and ask if them if they provide snow removal services. Explore whether or not they carry residential snow removal insurance, if that's important to you.
In recent years we have reached out to local landscapers to inquire if they carry that insurance and whether they would be amenable to servicing South Brunswick's Senior Center Community with a discounted rate. So far we only have one company and if you would like the contact info please call the office: 732.329.4000 x 7670
I am uncomfortable putting everybody's eggs in one basket, so if you are aware of a local company that we might be able to add to the list, please contact me.
