The Village has regulations regarding snow removal. It is the resident's responsibility to advise their contractor of those regulations. Simply put, snow may not be pushed or snowblown across any street or left in the roadway. No snow is to be pushed up around fire hydrants or utility boxes.

Pushing snow around mailboxes tends to create damage and may be hit by Village snow plows creating damage.

Now is the time to inspect the condition of your mailbox and make repairs. You should look for rotten/weakened posts, loose doors and flags, box conditions and fasteners mounting the box to the post. All fasteners should be outdoor suitable.

We are not responsible for a mailbox that was unable to withstand the weight of snow being plowed onto them. All reported incidents will be investigated.

Home Safety

Avoid Porch Pirates
It's easy for so-called "porch pirates" to snatch packages from your front door. According to Shorr Packaging Corp., 30 percent of those surveyed in 2017 had a package stolen. Packages were stolen from about 11 million homeowners last year, according to Package Guard.

Tech companies and shippers have been coming up with solutions to combat this problem. Here are a few tips you may find helpful.

Simple Solutions
The key is to avoid leaving packages on the porch unattended.

UPS recommends customers have packages "sent to where they are — not where they are not." If you are at work during the day, have packages delivered to where you work. If possible, have your packages sent to a relative or neighbor who is home during the day.

Make sure your package requires a signature so the shipper won't leave it on your porch.

Be specific with the shipper Some shippers, like UPS, will let you give specific instructions on where to drop your package. Choose a concealed spot.

Pick up your packages. Amazon has lockers where customers can have their packages delivered so you can pick them up at your convenience. There is an Amazon Locker at Whole Foods in Pinecrest!

High-tech Solutions
If you're ready to let Amazon in your house, Amazon Key allows delivery inside your front door for free. The Amazon Key kit starts around $210 for a keypad entry, camera and streaming capabilities. In-home delivery service for free for Prime members.

Companies like Ring and Nest provide mounted outdoor cameras that could deter would-be thieves by alerting homeowners when somebody's on the porch. If a package thief approaches, you’ll get an alert on your phone, so you can scare the scoundrel away by sounding a warning through the camera’s built-in microphone.

Home Safety Tip

Light It Up
As the days get shorter it's a good idea to set your lights on timers. Give your home the appearance that someone is at home even when you are not. Timers for indoor and exterior lighting are relatively inexpensive and easy to install. The lights add security and you will never have to walk into a totally dark home.

Vacation Watch
If you will be away from home for an extended period, let the police department know by filling in this handy form.
