Road and Sidewalk Snow Plowing / Clearing


During heavy snowfalls, property owners are encouraged to assist the City's snow removal crews by:

  • getting vehicles off the streets and parking in your driveway

  • keep catchbasins clear of snow and ice for proper drainage during a thaw


  • keep fire hydrants clear and visible

  • clear snow and ice from the municipal sidewalk abutting your property


Unfortunately, during snow removal operations, the snow removal equipment operators cannot lift their blade every time they come to a driveway approach.  Therefore, if possible, homeowners should wait to clear their driveway approaches until the plows have been able to clear the curb lanes.

Practice safe driving and always be aware of the road conditions and adjust your driving according to the road conditions.
