The Public Works Department coordinates the snow removal and road treatment process for snow and ice weather events within City limits. Although the strategy can change depending on the type of event that occurs, the City plows and treats collector and arterial streets first in order to provide emergency vehicle access. Those streets are considered the primary and secondary snow removal routes.
Once primary and secondary routes are cleared, City staff will begin plowing and treating residential streets. These streets are split into 4 sections, with each plow taking a quarter of the city. The trucks will try to get two passes (at a minimum) down each street, one down and one back. Once the weather event is over and the trucks have made at least one pass through the entire city, trucks will come back and clear more on the streets.
Important note: When a snow event is forecasted, residents should try and park their vehicles in their driveways, not on the street, so that plows can make two passes.
