Upon the installation of street improvements by a developer and prior to the acceptance by the Township as provided in § 255-68A(3)(a) and (b) and (16) of the Land Development Code of the Township of Independence, the developer shall be responsible for the maintenance of said streets, including but not limited to maintaining the streets free of snow and ice.
In the opinion of the Street Commissioner or his designee, if a developer has not kept any streets in his control free and clear of ice and snow within a reasonable time after any storm, then the Township shall be authorized to plow or treat said streets for snow and ice, and such plowing or treatment shall not be considered an acceptance of the roadways.
If the Township shall plow or treat the snow and ice, the developer shall pay, per event, to the Township fees which are hereby established at the rate of $0.25 per running foot of street for the plowing and $0.25 per running foot of street for each application of salt and/or sand, which fee shall be paid by the developer within 10 days of the submission of a statement to the developer, or in the absence thereof, said amount to be credited against its escrow account.
