The City of Joliet is once again offering snow removal assistance this winter to City of Joliet residents 65 years or older, or a person with a doctor verified disability. The program is designed to make it easier for seniors and persons with disabilities to leave their homes for necessities such as picking up prescriptions or groceries and getting to medical appointments by providing for removal of snow from paved driveways and service sidewalks at their homes. This program is restricted to single family homes only and funds are limited, and other requirements may apply.
Snow removal services are provided when there have been 2 or more inches of snowfall. Contractor will remove snow from your paved driveway and service walk from driveway to front door. Contractor is not required to remove snow from the back of the home. Snow is removed within 24 hours after the snowfall has stopped and contractor will not salt any areas. Contractor will remove snow between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. However, services cannot be guaranteed for a specific time of day.
