How does the City decide which streets get plowed?
Our first priority is to keep the main arterial streets open. We also ensure that we keep the access open to critical facilities such as the hospital and fire departments. Our second priority is to plow around schools and designated problem areas, such as problem hills and intersections. Other than hills and problem spots, we do not normally plow residential streets. For snow events over five inches the City will plow residential streets enough to make them passable.
