Since a few snowflakes have already fallen in Brandermill, now is the time to make note of the BCA snow clearing policy.

While clearing Brandermill roads is the responsibility of Virginia Department of Transportation, the BCA will help with snow clearing when snowfall accumulates to three inches.

The BCA staff will make use of free sand provided by VDOT to spread on parkways. The BCA will also assist in plowing the main parkways, major intersections, and the entrances to neighborhoods in Brandermill. However, clearing in the neighborhoods and cul-de-sacs will have to wait until VDOT has cleared major roads and VDOT equipment is available.

A line item of $1,000 is in the 2009 BCA budget, but no other funds are allocated for outside contractors to remove snow. In case of a medical emergency during normal business hours, please call 744-1035×108 for assistance and the BCA staff will do everything possible to assist clearing snow from a particular home to a main parkway.
