Now that winter has arrived, the Select Board and the Highway Department want to remind you of the following items:
· Residents are allowed to take three 5-gallon buckets (15 shovels full) of sand for their residence in Groton only. The use of town sand for commercial sanding or in mechanical sanders is not allowed.
· Please make sure you park your car at least 4 feet of the road side to allow for plowing. All residents are required to follow the Town Parking Ordinance which states under Parking Restrictions, section D: Snow Removal: No vehicle shall be parked on any street maintained by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation or the Town of Groton in such a manner so as to impede snow removal. No person shall stop or cause to be stopped, or park any vehicle, so as to impede or interfere with the proper snow clearing operations of the NH DOT or Town, when snow removal operations are in effect. As you are aware, snow removal operations are currently in effect. All vehicles found in violation of this ordinance may be removed (towed) and costs of such removal and subsequent storage of removed vehicles shall be at the expense of the owner of the vehicle.
· If you plow, snow blow or shovel snow from your property into the road, you are required to clean it up and will be held liable for any injuries or damages caused by those conditions if you do not clean it up. As stated in the Winter Maintenance of Roads and Sidewalks that New Hampshire Municipal Association (NHMA) put out, an abutter might, for instance, blow snow onto the sidewalk or into the road, or create runoff from melting snow on a roof that flows onto the sidewalk or road and freezes. In that case, the abutter may be held liable for any injuries or damages caused by those conditions. Ritzman v. Kashulines, 126 N.H. 286 (1985). Moreover, the municipality can require the abutter to correct conditions they have caused to the public sidewalk or road, or to pay the municipality’s costs in doing so. Directing water onto a sidewalk or road may cause ice to form and make the sidewalk or road dangerous for public use; this is considered a “violation" under the law, and the abutter may be fined by a court. RSA 236:19. Municipalities may notify the abutter of the problem and request them to correct it. RSA 236:35. If the abutter does not comply, the municipality can correct the situation itself and a court may order the abutter to repay the municipality the costs of responding to the situation. RSA 236:29; RSA 236:32; RSA 236:39.
