You can find the agenda for tonight’s Town Council Meeting by clicking on the ink below. Tonight’s meeting starts at 7:00pm.
With the 1st significant winter weather event of the year hitting the area this past weekend, the Town of Hamilton would like to explain to residents, businesses and property owners how the snow removal efforts are coordinatd between the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Town of Hamilton.
VDOT is responsible for plowing the public roads (primary, secondary, residential) throughout and around the Town of Hamilton. VDOT snow removal crews/drivers & contractors working for VDOT each are assigned a specific territory and responsibility. When snowfall occurs, crews are dispatched simultaneously to their assigned territory and snow removal routes are prioritized accordingly with major highways and high volume primary & secondary roads cleared first. Once the most heavily traveled roads and emergency routes are adequately clear, crews/drivers move to less-traveled secondary roads and residential streets. Snow removal on privately maintained roads is the responsibility of the property owners along the road or the homeowner association.
Driveway entries are privately owned and maintained by the property owners. Snow removal is the property owners’ responsibility.
Residents & businesses are asked to keep sidewalks safe and fire hydrants accessable. As soon as feasible, please clear snow off the sidewalks in front of the property so that all pedestrians may walk securely. Also please clear snow from around fire hydrants so that the fire department has ready access in the event of a fire emergency.
American Disposal will attempt trash & recycling collection on Wednesday, January 26th. Should they be unable to collect your trash or recycling, they will collect it next Wednesday, February 3rd.
