Snow Removal

The Town of Brookeville contracts with a snow plowing service for North, South, Water, the eastern portion of Market and the paved section of Church Streets. During a snowstorm, no plowing begins until an accumulation of 4 inches of snow has fallen on the streets. The Maryland State Highway Administration clears Georgia Avenue (Maryland Route 97) – the Town’s High Street and western Market Street.


Those residents and businesses with abutting sidewalks are responsible for keeping them litter free and are responsible for clearing their sidewalks, driveways and entrances within 24 hours of the end of a snowstorm. All residents are strongly encouraged to be good neighbors by clearing the sidewalks in front of their homes, as well as assisting those who may not be physically able to do so.
