Senior / Disabled Snow Removal Program

The Village of Bensenville Senior Snow Plowing Program is designed to help those in our community who need assistance to obtain a low cost solution to snow removal on their driveways, sidewalks, and private walks.

The Village will hire independent contractors to provide discounted rates for common snow removal services. The Village will also subsidize a portion of the cost. Applicants may select services based on an “a la carte” menu as listed below.

The Public Works Department will administer the program. Snow plowing of driveways and shoveling of sidewalks will occur after three (3) inches or more of snow has fallen. Snow removal will not begin until a snow event is completed (i.e. the snow has stopped falling). In the event of excessive snowfall (typically greater than six (6) inches), the independent contractors may be instructed to perform multiple visits. The Village will charge the participant for each visit made to the property. Timing of snow removal will depend on the snow event, but our goal would be to have all snow removal completed by 10am on any given day. The program does have specific eligibility requirements (listed below) that require documentation to prove eligibility.
