The City endeavors to clear as much snow and ice from the road as possible to expedite traffic and make travel safer. When City snow plow trucks clear roads, they’ll make multiple passes up and down the roads over an extended period of time. While snow is not intentionally pushed into residential driveways, unfortunately it’s unavoidable and snow will accumulate.
The City recommends that residents wait until the snow plows finish clearing the streets before shoveling driveway entrances.
Residents are responsible for clearing snow and ice from sidewalks along their property. It’s also recommended to wait until the snow plows finish, because snow cleared from the roads can push into sidewalks.
