Emergency Safety Tips Minimize
For Emergencies call 911

As the snow has stopped and roads are being cleared, snow on your roof, particularly if it’s a flat roof, is major concern.


Snow load on roofs may cause stress to roof structures

1.  Cracks in the ceiling is sometimes just a sign of stress relief and may not mean your roof is failing.

2.   If you suspect something is wrong, check your attic and see if any of supports are cracked - this is a sign of structural problems.  If you hear cracking noises -  Leave the building.

3.   Contact your insurance company, they have appraisers who can come out and assist you in making decisions and help you get funds to address problems.

Clear your vents, especially if you have a high efficiency furnace – these need air intake to operate.  A high efficiency furnace will shut down until the vent is cleared.  Once cleared, the furnace should restart, if not, call provider for advice.

Older systems won't shut down but might create a carbon monoxide safety issue.  Make sure you have a carbon monoxide detector that’s working; test if needed.  Look on your roof and make sure your chimney vent is clear of snow.  If your roof is not clear, and you can't clear it safely, call a roofing contractor to clear.


Flat roofs - clear your roof drains.  Check structural members for stress and damage; contact an engineer to address structural integrity.

Any structural question should be directed to Towns Building Department at 686-3470.

SANITATION  11-21-2014

Regularly scheduled pick up next week

Due to the emergency weather conditions, Garbage was not picked up Tuesday, Wednesday, And today.  Garbage will not be picked up tomorrow, Friday.  Garbage from this week will be picked up as regularly scheduled garbage pick up next week.


Highway is out working to clean up our streets.  Currently, the Highway Department has 20 plows out.  PLEASE BE PATIENT. The Highway dept. is working hard and will get to your street.

The Highway Department has 5 Blowers and 20 High-lifts coming today to help with cleanup. 50 Tandem trucks are expected to come in tomorrow to haul snow.  According to the Highway Superintendent, "The Town of Clarence and Tonawanda, and Ricky Rusiniak have sent the Town additional equipment to assist the Town. The Department is working hard to clean up the streets."

8 local companies are helping our highway department clean up the streets.  Keep roads clear so emergency vehicles can get through if needed.  

According to the Deputy Highway Superintendent:

"There has been numerous additional equipment brought into the town, including haul trucks, loaders, highlifts, and blowers. We have additional help from many private contractors and nearby municipalities. Many streets South of Losson have not been touched yet and the snow has to be hauled away. The plan is to punch every street with at least one lane down the center and come back and widen the entire road. This will not happen overnight, but we are working as hard as we can. "

The Highway Dept has contracted with several companies who will come out and dig out your driveway for $200 and up, depending on how big your driveway is. Please call 686-3450 and they will get you on the list.

Highway will keep residents posted.
