PRESS RELEASE – December 7, 2016
The Whitehouse Police Department, in partnership with Boy Scout Troop #97 (Hope United Methodist Church), will be offering snow shoveling services for our elderly and/or infirm residents of the Village of Whitehouse.
In accordance with Village Ordinance Section 909.11:
“The occupants of each single, residential, commercial or industrial property and the owner of any multiple residential, commercial or industrial property or of any unoccupied or unimproved property abutting upon public walks or driveways, shall keep and maintain the same free and clear of snow and ice. Deposits of such material due to storms or other casualty shall be removed within twenty-four (24) hours of such deposit.”
After a measurable snow accumulation, a representative of the scouts will be notified by the Police Department, and the scouts will be sent to those residences on our Snow Removal List to clear sidewalks, walkways and driveways of snow as needed. The scouts will be compiling service hours as part of the process of earning their next rank, and as a way of providing a valuable service to our community. The service is offered free of charge.
Interested elderly or infirm residents of Whitehouse that would like to sign up for this program are encouraged to call the Whitehouse Police Department (419-877-9191), or email Chief McDonough (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions and/or to be added to the list for this service.
