Snow Plowing

Because we live in a “winter wonderland”, one of the most important jobs is keeping our City streets safe and passable for motorists. Overnight parking is prohibited on City streets from November through the month of April so that we may plow the streets during the early morning hours. In an average year the City uses 350 to 400 tons of deicing salt on the streets to keep them clear.
