Anti-icing of the roadways begins before a snowfall, with the application of brine. Once the snow starts falling, Public Works typically begins plowing operations after two to three inches of snow has fallen, or sooner if road condition reports indicate the need. Primary streets are plowed first, followed by secondary streets and then cul-de-sacs. Residents can report streets in need of salt or ice using the Snow Plow Condition Report Form.
Plowing may be suspended between 8:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m., depending on the severity of the snow event. Public Works crews aim to have all streets and cul-de-sacs cleared within a day after the snow stops falling.
Please keep in mind that the shoveling, dumping, plowing and blowing of snow onto streets and public sidewalks is a violation of local ordinances. Shoveling snow with the direction of traffic will help reduce the amount of snow plowed back onto driveway aprons.
