Sidewalk Snow Relief Pilot Program

Sidewalk Snow Relief Pilot Program

 

(Amherst, NY) The Town of Amherst is preparing for a pilot program of providing sidewalk snow relief services along segments of Maple Road and Niagara Falls Boulevard as a pilot study. The segments are Maple Road from Millersport Highway to Transit Road and Niagara Falls Boulevard from Kenmore Avenue to Betina Avenue. A letter was recently sent to all residents all these segments. These are the two roads whose residents responded positively for relief when the town polled in March 2011.

Sidewalk snow relief along these corridors remains a priority for the Town Board. The Town Highway Department will provide the service.  Property owners will not be assessed any fee for this service in their 2012 Town tax bill.  The study will evaluate the service and be used to support future decision-making.
