City Snow Removal Reminders
Plowing and Salting: Streets are plowed when snow fall is 3 inches or greater. Please remember to remove any cars from the street on these days (snowfall of 3 inches or greater) in order for City plows to clear the streets. Streets with less than 3 inches of snow are generally not plowed, but are spot salted, especially at intersections. The City does not salt streets to a bare road surface. Private roads are maintained by the property owners of that street.
Sidewalks: The clearing of snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to private property is the responsibility of the property owner or resident. As a courtesy, when snowfall accumulation is greater than 2 inches, the City will clear sidewalks early Monday through Friday, typically before school starts. Please make every effort to keep your sidewalks clear of snow and ice throughout the winter.
City personnel take every precaution to ensure that snow is removed in a safe manner but sometimes snow plowing results in property damage. Residents are reminded that the City is not responsible for damage to items in the public right-of-way such as sprinkler heads, shrubbery, plantings/planters, or any decorative materials.
The Public Works and Public Safety Departments monitor specific weather and road conditions to ensure the City roads are safe during snow removal season.
