equipped with 4WD, chains and/or studded tires are essential for safe winter driving.
In general, winter road maintenance on subdivision roads is limited to that necessary
to provide passable, single-lane roads for cars with chains or 4WD vehicles with
traction type tires.
of the varied start times for optimum snow plowing within the subdivision, all
residents should use caution when driving our roads while snow removal equipment
is operating. This is especially true in the early morning hours when road conditions
can be the most treacherous.
Maintenance and Snow Removal Contract
Gardner Company is the subdivision's current road maintenance and snow removal
contractor. Questions or problems regarding these services should be directed
to the maintenance manager or any Board member, not to the contractor's employees.
Due to contractual
and insurance concerns, residents may not plow roads. Please limit your snow removal
to your driveway and other areas on your property. During snow season, snow removal
equipment will be working at varied hours, so drive carefully at all times. Snow
berms left in front of driveways due to snow plowing may be unavoidable.
Removal - Private Property
road contractors are not contracted to work on any owner's private property, including
driveways. The Board assumes no liability for any work requested by a property
owner and performed by the subdivision's road maintenance and snow removal contractor
on the owner's property.
alternatives for snow removal include having your own snow blower, or a cooperative
arrangement with a neighbor who has one, or hiring a local individual who provides
seasonal snow plowing service in the area. Snow plowing services are usually advertised
in the local paper and posted on bulletin boards in town.
The DPHOA Board
is responsible for billing property owners for annual road maintenance and/or
water system assessments. The assessment billing period is July 1 - June 30. Invoices
are mailed in late June.
