As soon as the snow falls, the Village stands ready with its snow fighting fleet and the best deicing products available. However, residents can still help us in our snow removal efforts. The Village of Niles enforces its Snow Ordinance during times of snow fall greater than 1”. This ordinance is in place to prevent accidents, save money, save time, and increase the efficiency of snow removal. Please review the Village’s policies during snow emergencies.
