The primary purpose of snowplowing is to clear the roads for our emergency response providers. Snowplow routes are divided into primary and secondary snow routes. Due to budget limitations, the Public Works Department does not plow citywide. In addition to primary and secondary snow routes, priorities are also given to streets across from hospitals and schools.
All remaining residential streets are only plowed or treated if snow accumulations exceed 10 inches of undrifted snow depth.
Residents are required by City Code to clear their sidewalk within 24 hours of the end of a storm.
