Snow Plow Routes and Map
The Public Works department takes great pride in keeping the city streets and downtown area cleared of snow. Please bear with the crew of 3, as they work to do their jobs. When snow gets to 3 or 4 inches deep they start work at 3 am to clean it all up. The heavier the snow fall the longer it takes to get it all.
You can help them in several ways:
- Please do not pull in behind a working plow as they can not see you.
- Do not throw snow out into the road, this creates a dangerous situation for other drivers.
- There are only so many places to put the snow, so please realize you are not being picked on when the plow leaves snow behind.
- Move all vehicles off the roadway if you do not want to be plowed in.
- If you see the plow working in a parking lot, please use a different lot. Patience is a virtue:)
