City ServicesCity Snow Removal   
CITY SNOW PLOWING POLICY

Snow plowing of City streets is governed by the City's Snow Plowing and Removal Policy, revised on September 22, 1999. This policy calls for the following course of action in removing snow: Please do not shovel, blow or push snow into streets.

FIRST PRIORITY:  Downtown area bound by Market, Washington, Scott and Madison Streets including all streets and parking spaces.

PRIMARY ROUTES INCLUDE: Bridge Street/DeWitt Road; Main Street; Wilson Street; Schavey Road; Herbison Road from Sandhill to the East City Limit. East Webb Drive to the East City Limit.

SECOND PRIORITY: All remaining streets, parking lots, public property, sidewalks and  cul-de-sacs.

THIRD PRIORITY:  Snow piles removed from downtown areas and intersections, cemetery driveways and damaged mailbox and street sign repairs from snowplowing. 

Efforts are always made by the City to prevent the snowplows from pushing snow into your driveway. This cannot always be avoided.

SNOW REMOVAL AROUND FIRE HYDRANTS & MAILBOXES:

Please help your mail carriers by shoveling the snow from around your mailbox and if you have a fire hydrant in front of your property it is good practice to keep this area clear of snow as well.  Keeping these areas maintained will help ensure prompt delivery of your mail and a quicker response time from the fire department in case of a fire in your neighborhood.

SNOW REMOVAL FROM SIDEWALKS

Property owners are responsible for removing snow and ice from the sidewalk in front or on the side of their properties. Snow and ice must be removed within twenty-four hours after snowfall.

REPAIR & MAINTENANCE

Property owners are responsible for maintaining and keeping in good repair any sidewalk that abuts or is adjacent to their property. This includes replacing sidewalk squares that have heaved or cracked. No sidewalk may be repaired without first securing a construction permit from the City.
