Snow Removal & Control
The Street Division has one snow plow. They begin preparing for the snow season in summer by:
- Getting snow equipment ready
- Stockpiling supplies
- Training staff
- Updating and exercising the City's emergency response procedures
Priority routes and streets adjacent to priority routes will be plowed or sanded first to accommodate fire, medical, and police response as well as transit, school buses and commuter traffic. Once these routes have been cleared of snow and conditions are stable, crews will begin clearing the remaining streets.
