Plowing Procedures


During the winter, the Street-Traffic Division monitors street conditions on a 24-hour basis. Day or night, when snow accumulation reaches +/- 3 inches with a forecast of continued accumulation, crews begin plowing and continue to plow and sand as needed.

To ensure maximum plowing results and to avoid being plowed in, citizens are requested to park vehicles off the streets and snow routes.

  • Plows

  • Snow blowers
The City operates:
  • Three motor graders
