Plowing cul-de-sacs can be quite challenging. Most properties on cul-de-sacs have frontages that are fairly narrow and, consequently, snow must be pushed into a smaller space. This along with the large amount of snow that needs to be removed from a cul-de-sac result in a significant amount of snow being deposited on the lawns in the cul-de-sac.
It is unavoidable and unintentional. Plows are simply moving the snow that is in the street off to the side of the road. Like water, moving snow will follow the path of least resistance which, unfortunately, is your freshly shoveled driveway.
Town crews plow the streets curb to curb, or as close as possible. Whatever snow is left in front of mailboxes is the responsibility of the homeowner to remove.
The Granby Police Department stays in close contact with the Department of Public Works during a storm. If there is a question as to whether a road has been cleared the Department of Public Works will be called and, if necessary, dispatch a plow truck to the location of the emergency.
