No contractor can do landscape maintenance work or private snow removal, on the territory of the Town, without having secured a permit to this end. Any owner who hires a landscaper or snow removal contractor must ensure that the contractor holds a valid permit for the current year, duly issued by the Town. A permit is issued for each of the contractor’s vehicles and cannot be transferred to other vehicles or contractors.

Landscapers: the annual permit is valid from April 1 to December 1. It must be displayed inside the vehicle on the upper-left corner of the rear view window to ensure identification at all times.

Snow removal contractors: the annual permit must be displayed inside the vehicle on the lower-left corner of the windshield to ensure identification at all times.

Required documents
