Plowing and Salting Plan
It is our goal to have all streets in the City plowed within 24 hours of a storm ending.
It is our goal to have all streets in the City plowed within 24 hours of a storm ending. The Hills and Main roads are a priority and are first to be plowed. Secondary roads are plowed once the Main roads are safe. This includes heavily traveled side streets and roads around schools. The side streets are plowed next starting in the areas of heaviest snowfall. During snow events of 1” or more per hour, main roads will be plowed as frequently as possible
During periods of snowfall between approximately 11:00 pm – 4:00 am salting is kept to a minimum due to low traffic volumes. Only intersections, hills, curves and bridges will be salted on main roads between these hours. During snow events of 1” or more per hour from 4:00 am – 11:00 pm only intersections, hills, curves, bridges, and school zones will be salted on main roads. Secondary roads will not be salted except for 200ft. at each intersection, and at hills, curves, bridges and school zones.
