Snow Removal Tips

Ensure your safety and help with City snow removal:

  • Stay back at least 50' from the rear of a plow truck so the driver can see you. If you can't see the driver in his mirrors he can't see you.
  • Park your vehicles in your driveway.
  • Don't allow your vehicles to hang out into the street.
  • Teach your children to stay behind the sidewalks when they see the plow trucks coming.
  • Avoid passing or driving beside plow trucks.  Some trucks are capable of plowing multiple lanes of snow at one time.
  • Avoid placing snow from your driveway back into the street. Less snow will be pushed into your driveway by passing plow trucks.
  • Shovel the snow from your driveway to the down street side.  Down street is the direction traffic flows past your driveway.
  • Remove portable basketball goals, hockey goals, skate board ramps and other structures from the street.  This will enable plow trucks to reach the curb and eliminate damage to the truck or portable structures.
  • Maintain trimmed tree branches along the street.
  • Clear sidewalks adjacent to your property. The City's Snow Brigade Program helps elderly and/or disabled residents with snow removal.
