Snow Removal Update

December 26, 2017

Thank you for your patience as we clean up after the most recent snowstorm.

DPW crews are out working today completing the last of the snow removal. The streets will need to be widened in some areas (especially those where the presence of cars prevented snow removal), which could result in snow being placed back into driveways. We apologize for the inconvenience to those that have already shoveled. This work will be done during the day today, so that residents and businesses can shovel this evening and should not have to again tomorrow morning.

As we enter into the next few days of cold temperatures, please be reminded that salt can lose its effectiveness at temperatures under 10 degrees. Fortunately, the sun today should help the salt to work despite the cold air temperature. Please be extra careful when traveling during the extremely cold weather.

As a reminder, City Ordinance requires the following:

Residents: Please clear your sidewalk of snow and ice within 48 hours of snow cessation.
Business owners: Please clear your sidewalks within 4 hours of snow cessation or by the start of your business day.

Please shovel the snow onto your property. It is against City Ordinance to shovel the snow into the street or onto a neighbor's property.

Vehicles and any other obstructions (such as basketball hoops) should be removed from the roadways.

We also request that you please help the fire department by making sure that fire hydrants around your home or business are cleared of snow, accessible and visible from the street as soon as possible after a snow storm. Every second counts in an emergency situation.
