Senior Snow Removal Program
Driveway Snowplow Service
Applications accepted beginning October 2rd, 2023.
Leyden Township offers a Driveway Snowplow Service to qualifying property owners in unincorporated Leyden Township. The property must be owner occupied during the snowplowing season and you must qualify under either A or B as noted. Vacant or rental properties do not qualify for this program.
There is a $10 charge for each snowplow.
A: Applicant is the property owner and occupant, and is 65 years of age or older, with no younger able-bodied person residing in the home. Proof of age is required via a current Driver's License, State ID card or other acceptable document. If there are younger, non-able person(s) residing at the property, their medical verification disqualifying them from shoveling the driveway must accompany this application.
B: Applicant is the property owner and occupant, and is under 65 years of age, and is physically disabled with no able-bodied person residing in the home. Medical verification from your doctor must accompany this application. If there are non-able person(s) residing at the property, their medical verification disqualifying them from shoveling the driveway must accompany this application.
Medical verification information is sought strictly to verify eligibility for the program, and the medical verification information will be treated by the Township as confidential and will not be used for any other purposes, and the applicant agrees to provide and update information required for determining eligibility for the program when requested and agrees to waive and release Leyden Township for use of the medical verification information.
Due to equipment issues, narrow driveways, stone driveways, circular or U shaped driveways, driveways with obstructions and driveways with parked vehicles will not be plowed. Due to tight scheduling and in an effort to service everyone that qualifies, driveways will not be plowed if obstructed when a crew arrives. During a heavy snow fall driveways may look unplowed within a short period of time after being plowed. Driveways may need to be plowed more than once during heavy snow falls. The $10 charge is for each plow. The frequency of plowing is at the discretion of Leyden Township. Snow plow crews are required to work whenever the need arises and sometimes are out at late hours. Crews may plow driveways at any time after the Township's roads have been cleared. Leyden Township will make every effort to clear driveways during daylight hours and as efficiently as possible.
Leyden Township is not responsible for property damage including damage to driveways.
