BEFORE STORMS AND EXTREME COLD

What We Do

  • Contract with an accredited weather service for timely information and response
  • Clear 120 miles of municipal roadway: 240 lane miles on more than 360 individual streets
  • Once snow begins to fall or ice develops, apply ice control abrasives
    • Mixture of wet rock salt and fine aggregate
  • Have 12 routes, each assigned at least one spreader truck
  • Prioritize streets
    • Major through or access streets and extreme grades having the highest priority
  • At a snow depth of 2 inches, and if snow will continue to fall, begin plowing
  • Each route is assigned at least two plows
  • Snowstorm of 4 to 6 inches requires approximately eight hours to clear all the streets
  • Ice control abrasives may be required again
    • Front end loaders, to clear intersections and drainage basin inlets in critical areas and further open cul-de-sacs, will be used for significant snow volume

What You Can Do to Help

  • Wait until the street has been plowed to the edge of pavement before shoveling the street end of your driveway
  • Have contractors keep the plowed snow on your property wherever possible
  • Limit your vehicular travel during snow or ice storms
  • Obey all posted parking regulations
  • Please assist the Department of Public Works by removing all vehicles from the road during snow removal operations
  • Clearing the snow from around fire hydrants and catch basin inlets
  • Children should be cautioned about the dangers of sledding on the street

Trash & Recycling Collection During Winter Storms 

In the event of inclement weather, such as snow, ice storms, and hurricanes, the same schedule used for a holiday will apply. If trash and/or recycling services are suspended due to weather, your trash and/or recycling collection will be the next day, i.e., a snow storm forces us to suspend trash collection on a Monday; Monday’s trash and recycling will be collected Tuesday, and Tuesday’s to Wednesday, and so forth for the remainder of the week.
