All Borough and State roadways within the Borough of Hatboro are plowed and salted by Hatboro Public Works. You can help in our efforts to clear roadways as quickly as possible by parking your car in a driveway or another (permitted) off-road location. When shoveling your driveway, you can also aid Public Works by piling snow to the right of the driveway (if you are facing the street) so that the snow will be pushed away from the driveway entrance when the road is plowed.
For questions concerning snow removal, please call Borough Hall at 215-443-9100. During a snow storm, our Public Works Department works to clear streets and to keep Borough Roads safe and passable. The staff at Borough Hall can answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding snow removal, plowing, and other snow related information.
