French Lake Township
Driveway Snowplowing Notice
Residents who want to have their driveway plowed by the township may sign up by sending an advance fee of $100 for the 2009-2010 snow season. The fee can be mailed to the township clerk at 15460 County Road 37 NW, Annandale, MN 55302. The advance fee is payable by November 10th, 2009.
*New residents wanting this service must call the township clerk prior to sending the advance fee.
Snowplowing Policy
1. Low hanging branches and trees must be trimmed at least 14 feet above the driveway. Low hanging limbs have damaged township equipment in the past.
2. The township plows will plow and wing out a driveway going in and coming out of the driveway – we do not clean yards. The plows need a large area to turn equipment around. Keep vehicles and other equipment clear of area.
3. Driveways will not be plowed if the ground is not frozen.
Thank you.
Township of French Lake
