Snow Removal

City-Wide Expansion – Snow Ordinance Street Program

1.   Plowing to occur each storm after Snow Routes are completed. This means all streets would be plowed whenever the Snow Routes are plowed instead of the current four inch policy. This will be a huge improvement in service for all neighborhoods.

2.   Through use of more efficient “wing plow” equipment many tax dollars will be saved. Streets will be plowed curb to curb in return for just moving your car off the street until the plows go through.

      3. PLOWING WILL START IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS IF 2" OR MORE OF SNOW IS ON THE GROUND.
