Q. In the event of a winter snow storm, which streets will the City plow?
A. The city’s street crew will plow the City’s primary arterial and collector streets in an effort to keep them safe and passable (see attachment for map).
Q. Why those streets?
A. The goal is to help our residents get to and from their places of business and to keep the City’s primary roads open to emergency response equipment. Due to limits of City’s resources and staffing levels, snow plowing will be limited to this route.
Q. What are the residents responsible for when it comes to snow removal?
A. To Aid the effort the City asks that vehicles along the route be parked off of the right of way to avoid possible damage from plowing the snow to the edge of the roadway.
Property owners are responsible for removing any snow that might pile up in front of driveway approaches and on sidewalks from plowing.
