Streets is the largest division in the Public Works Department. Streets staff are           
responsible for maintaining the Village right-of-Street Jurisdiction Mapways and most other Village properties, including the cemetery and commuter parking lots.

However not all streets in Bartlett fall under the Village's jurisdiction.
State, county and township roads are maintained and plowed by those agencies.

Snow Plowing

Bartlett streets are plowed in the following order: main streets, secondary collector streets, cul-de-sacs and dead-end streets. Priority is given to the most heavily traveled streets. 

Parking on Village streets is prohibited after 2 inches of snow has fallen to allow plows to  completely clear the roadways. It’s a good idea to wait until after the final pass of the plow to shovel the end of your driveway. 

An unavoidable and unfortunate consequence of the snow removal operations is when snow from the street ends up at the end of driveways. Public Works crews understand the frustration this may cause. Here are some tips and reminders to help avoid some headaches and backaches when shoveling.

* Clear about 10 feet of snow from the right side of your driveway (as you are facing it)
* Pile the snow to the left of your driveway- downstream of plowing operations.
* DO NOT shovel snow into the street. It is a violation of Village code, can cause ice patches and can potentially result in serious accidents.

The Village clears snow from sidewalks surrounding public buildings and the commuter areas it maintains. The Village does not clear neighborhood sidewalks. 

Please be a snow angel and shovel your sidewalk so school children and pedestrians can walk with greater ease and safety. Also, please clear snow from around fire hydrants and storm sewers. Call Public Works, 630-837-0811, if you have any snow removal questions.
