Snow Emergency Routes
During the winter months, residents are reminded that Penn Township has established snow emergency routes. These routes, designated by signs, are John Street to Wirt Avenue to Baltimore Street (500-600 block); all of West Granger Street; Westminster Avenue from Frederick Street to West Granger Street; all of York Street (Rt. 116), Baltimore Street (Rt. 94) and Frederick Street (Rt. 194) to the boundaries of Hanover Borough, West Manheim Township and Conewago Township. Residents and businesses located along these roadways are reminded that when the Chief of Police puts a snow emergency into effect, all parked vehicles must be removed from the roadway in order to facilitate snow removal from curb to curb for safer travel. Once the snow emergency has been lifted, parking will once again be allowed.  

Residents are also asked to keep all portable basketball nets from hanging out over the roadway. These nets could interfere with the plowing of the street and could cause damage to the public works equipment. Of course, nothing should be placed in the roadway itself. Residents should also prepare their curbside mailbox for winter by placing reflective tape on the mailbox so the snowplow operator can see them at night.  

Drivers should also be wary during inclement weather. Always wear seatbelts and make sure headlights are on when the windshield wipers are in use. IT'S THE LAW!
