Notice for Snow Removal

A reminder to the Plymouth Borough residents regarding the Snow & Ice Ordinance. All residents of the borough, including owners, tenants, occupant lessee or otherwise shall clear a path on any sidewalk abutting a street or alley of the borough to a width of a minimum of thirty (30) inches wide.  Sidewalks shall be cleaned of ice and snow within twelve (12) hours after the cessation of any snow, sleet and/or ice event.  It is unlawful to throw, deposit, plow or blow snow from driveways and sidewalks onto any street or alley of the borough.  Residents are urged to respect the work of the Public Works Department by not moving snow back onto borough streets after they have been plowed and salted.

Residents are asked not to park on corners of streets. This is not only against the law, but it makes it difficult for the Public Works Department to make the corners with a snow plow. Violators will be ticketed.

The following are snow emergency routes. These streets will receive priority by the Public Works Department. Residents are urged to adhere to the winter parking restrictions on these roadways following snow storms of three (3) inches or more:

  • Route 11 - Carey Avenue to Vine Street: no parking on odd numbered side of street.

  • Route 11 – Vine Street to Driscoll Street: no parking on both sides of street.

  • Cherry Street- No parking on both sides.

  • Academy Street – No parking on even numbered side.

  • Davenport Street – No parking on odd numbered side.

  • Orchard Street – No parking on even numbered side

  • Second Street – No parking on even numbered side from Davenport Street to Orchard Street

  • Franklin Street – No parking on odd numbered side.

  • Vine Street – No parking on even numbered side from Main Street to Larksville Borough line.

  • Moss Street – No parking on even numbered side.

  • Turner Street – No parking on odd numbered side.


The Mayor of Plymouth Borough, according to the Snow and Ice Ordinance has the authority to declare a snow or ice emergency in the borough. Vehicles parked on borough streets during winter weather emergencies may be ticketed or towed by the Plymouth Borough Police Department.  The penalty for violation of the Snow and Ice ordinance is fifty dollars ($50.00). Vehicles which are towed are subject to the towing and storage fee of the towing agent.  During a severe winter storm, residents should pay close attention to television and radio news broadcasts and the daily newspaper for information regarding snow emergencies in the Borough Plymouth.

A copy of the full ordinance is available here and also at the Plymouth Borough Administration Office 162 West Shawnee Avenue, Plymouth, PA 18651.
