MILLCREEK TOWNSHIP REMINDS RESIDENTS NOT TO PARK IN STREET DURING SNOW EVENTS 
For Immediate Release: Dec. 19 2023 
MILLCREEK, PA – Millcreek Township is reminding residents not to park on streets during any winter weather event. Ordinance 99-7 prohibits anyone from leaving their vehicle in the street during winter snow removal. Vehicles left on the road eight hours after being given notification will be towed at the owner’s expense.
 Clearing the roads of vehicles provides plows passage down streets allowing for adequate snow removal for all residents.
 “Our crews work hard to clear the streets during difficult Millcreek winters and we’re asking residents to do their part for all the other residents that need to navigate Millcreek’s streets” said Millcreek Supervisor Dan Ouellet liaison to the Public Works Department. 
A winter weather event is whenever the plows are out removing snow. 
Some other winter reminders include: 
• Residents are responsible for clearing snow around fire hydrants located on their property. 
• Remember when trucks are plowing, they back up frequently and cannot always see vehicles in their mirrors. Please give them ample room. 
• Remove leaves and other debris that may prohibit the flow of water into storm sewers. 
• Clear snow from driveways by shoveling out an additional triangle on the front left (facing the street) for plows to drop the snow they are carrying. Pile any snow on the right length of the driveway.
