The City has an adopted snow removal and salt application policy. This is the same policy in effect last winter. In anticipation of the upcoming winter season, listed below are some of the key points.
Plowing and Salting - Streets will be plowed when snow fall is 3 inches or greater. Streets with less than 3 inches of snow will not be plowed, but will be spot salted. The City does not salt streets to a bare road surface.
Sidewalks - The clearing of snow 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 during regular working hours, 5:30 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday.
City personnel take every precaution to ensure that snow is removed in a safe manner but sometimes snowplowing 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 will continue to monitor specific weather and road conditions to ensure the City roads are safe during snow removal season.
