Plymouth Township snow policy statement
The Township does not plow streets; this is the responsibility of Wayne County Roads or your own Homeowner’s Association by private contract.
The Township only salts sidewalks and pathways on township-owned property; Wayne County Roads salts major streets.
Residents and businesses must remove snow and ice from their adjacent sidewalks within 24 hours of a snow or ice event or be subject to an ordinance violation.
Plymouth Township does not issue “Snow Emergencies,” but if you hear of one on TV or radio, please be considerate and move your vehicle off the street so County or contracted snow plows can do their job.
