As the winter season approaches us again, we would like to inform our community of some snow removal procedures and ways you can help this year.
For after hour snow events, the Police department will contact us when they feel it is necessary for us to come in and plow or put material down on slick roads.
Anytime we get approximately 3 inches of snow or more, the street department will pile snow in the downtown area to help with business parking. The piles will usually be hauled away within three days of the event. We will also plow alleys when we get 3 inches of snow or more, after the streets have been cleared.
Snow in cul-de-sacs will be plowed to the center of the cul-de-sacs on heavier snow events until all the streets are cleared, the snow will then be removed from the center and piled behind the curbs.
Removing your vehicles and trash containers from the streets and cul-de-sacs would be helpful before or during snow events. This will allow us to plow up next to curbs or the edge of the streets. Also please do not shovel or blow snow into the streets from sidewalks or driveways.
We as a department strive to keep our community safe during the winter season; we appreciate your help in making this a safe snow removal season.
