Snow Removal Program

BCCOA Snow Removal ProgramThe Snow Removal Program is available to seniors of Benzie County that are 60 and older. This service provides shoveling and plowing with a maximum of 12 snow removals per year. The assigned independent contractor will insure that the seniors are able to get in and out of their homes and driveways safely during the winter months.

Charges for these services are determined using a sliding fee scale based on your household income.

 

What we will need from you:

  • Provide proof of your total monthly gross household income.  Based on your monthly income (Social Security income, retirement/pensions, etc.), a sliding scale fee will be used to determine your cost per voucher. (Please bring in your most recent bank statement)
  • Purchase snow removal vouchers in advance of getting snow removed.
  • You may purchase vouchers 1 at a time or in any quantity up to 12.  Each household is limited to 12 snow removals per season which will include your driveway, sidewalk and main entrance.
  • Driveway size limit that each voucher will be used for reimbursement is up to 50 feet X 200 feet. If your driveway is longer than that, arrangements will need to be made between you and your assigned contractor for any additional costs to plow.

Since I cannot shovel or take care of the snow, I am very grateful to the Council on Aging for this service.

We were always plowed out in time to go to the Gathering Place for lunch.
