Snow and Ice Control Operations - Guidelines and Information for the Public

Please be aware that with the onset of winter, crews will begin plowing, sanding and de-icing. Stay well back from equipment and do not attempt to pass. Slow down when operating vehicles and adjust to the reduction of traction and potentially slippery conditions. Please remember that snow and ice control is not a substitute for caution when operation a vehicle during the winter.

The City has a policy regarding clearing of snow from the end of driveways. Driveway ends will be cleared of the snow windrow ONLY on streets that are plowed all one way (sidewalk on one side of the road only, windrows will be cleaned on the opposite side as the sidewalk) and ONLY when the windrow is large or consists of wet or frozen lumps that would be difficult for the homeowners to remove. This service will be performed within 5 hours of street plowing.

Placing snow onto the roadway, at any time, and parking vehicles on the roadway during snow removal operations is NOT permitted. The Public Works Department requests and appreciates your cooperation and assistance in making the winter season enjoyable and safe.
