Can someone come clear the snow that was pushed back on my driveway?

Unfortunately, snow in the driveway is an unavoidable consequence of snow plowing and is not done intentionally. The City’s main concern is making streets safe to emergency vehicles and motorists. To avoid double work when clearing the driveway, try to push snow to the right side of the driveway when looking toward the street instead of to the left. When the plow comes by the snow will dump in this clear area instead of your driveway approach. The more snow you clear from this area, the less will be deposited at your driveway entrance. The diagram below shows how to avoid the "second shovel."Second Shovel Diagram
