To Residents and Occupants,
The Village of Anna is in phase II of the water meter replacement program. In 2014 an area of town was selected and those meters were changed to radio read meters.
This year, the remainder meters will need to be changed. Recently some of you have received a letter from NECO, our meter company, to call and schedule your change out. If you have an inside meter, they will need access to your home. Please contact them promptly to schedule an appointment.
Snow & Ice Removal Policy
During snow/ice events of two inches or more, vehicles must be moved to allow for plowing of streets for the safety of residents and others traveling within the Village limits. On the even number day of the month, vehicles may be parked on the side of the street where building addresses end in an even number, and on the odd numbered days, the odd side, where parking is lawfully allowed, until the snow is removed. In this way, within two days the whole street will be plowed all the way to the curb. Once plowed, vehicles may park on either side. Upon the first violation of this section, the owner will receive a warning. Upon a second violation, he or she will receive a parking ticket, and upon a third violation, the vehicle will be towed at the owner's expense.
Property owners are responsible for clearing all snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to their property within 48 hours of the end of snowfall or precipitation. The Public Works Department suggests that residents wait until the Village plows have pushed back snow to the curb line before clearing the sidewalk areas. This generally happens after snow has stopped. It is against the law to plow snow from driveways and walkways onto the road. Remember, residents/property owners are also responsible for their snow removal contractor's actions. Residents should also keep in mind that snow plows are designed to remove snow from the roadway to the edge of the road. It is likely that the plow will leave behind a window of snow in front of driveways. Residents are responsible for removing this snow.
Ordinance 1545-09 prohibits snow to be placed on any public street/highway in such a manner as to impede or inconvenience travel on any roadway. Residents or private contractors will also be responsible for any curb damage done as a result of plowing snow across roadways.
An emergency mass notification alert system
is available for all Shelby County residents and workers to
provide rapid notification about local emergencies, hazards
and other threats using a mix of telephone calls, text and
email messages, and TTY/TDD service for the hearing impaired.
This service will be used primarily for alerts in regards
to public safety, weather, environmental hazards, criminal
activity and missing persons.
