It’s the time of the year when we turn our attention to the snowy winter months ahead.


According to Town of Manlius Code 139-11, parking is prohibited on all Town Roads November 1st to April 15th, from 1:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m.

Snow Plow Stakes:

Our plow drivers stake their plow routes to suit the operator’s needs so that they can locate the edge of the road to minimize property damage. If you feel that you want a plow stake that was not placed in your lawn, please feel free to purchase and install it.


This is a good time to check your mailbox to see if it is securely fastened to the post, and check the post to see that it is not rotten and is firmly in the ground. It is often the weight of the snow that breaks a rotten post or knocks a wobbly mailbox from its post.

Circles & right-hand corners:

If you live on a circle, you are most likely to get an unproportionate amount of snow in your yard caused by the large circle area and the pie shape of your lot. The drivers distribute the snow to best clear the circle in the most efficient way possible. These are normally problem areas, and we are well aware that lawn damage may occur. We will do our best to repair these damages in the spring. Just call our office at 656-3090 and ask to be put on the spring yard clean-up list.


· Please do not let your children play on or near the snow banks as this creates a safety hazard.

· And as always, please give our snow plow drivers plenty of room whether you are following them or approaching them. These plows are very large pieces of equipment with some areas of obstructed views. Remember that the operators of the plow trucks are our family, friends, and neighbors. We want them as well as you to have a safe winter.

County Roads:

Once again this winter, we will be plowing designated Onondaga County roads located within our Town. They are as follows: Alverna Heights, Highbridge Street & Highbridge Hill, Palmer Road (from Salt Springs to Route 173), Peck Road, Salt Springs Road, School Road North & South, Sweet Road (Route 173 to Route 5), and Troop K Road. Please feel free to call us concerning snow plowing issues only associated with these roads.
As always, we will do our best to make sure your roads are safe for you and your family to travel this winter. Please feel free to call the Highway Department at 656-3090 to report any concerns.

For more information concerning the plowing of your roads, please refer to the section below “Snowplowing & Mailboxes.”

The Town Highway Department gates are now locked for yard debris drop-off after our business hours and on weekends.  The gate WILL NOT be open evenings or weekends as in the past. However, free mulch will still be available 7 days a week. Please plan your visit to the mulch pile in daylight hours.
Brush and tree parts that are removed from properties in the Town of Manlius may be brought to the Highway Department Monday-Friday, 7:00am-3:00pm. There is no charge to the Town of Manlius residents for this service. If you cannot get here during these hours, OCCRA Jamesville and Amboy sites are open on Saturdays 9:00am-4:00pm, April 2 - November 30, and will be happy to accept your yard waste at a small fee. In return for this fee, they will provide you with mulch or compost.
