Winter Weather Treatment Policy
GENERAL OVERVIEW:This Winter Weather Policy is a general policy to help residents understand the city’s approach to dealing with typical winter storms. It is a general guideline only. Pre-treatment, plowing and salting operations will be evaluated on an event-by-event basis, based on the type, temperature, severity, longevity, and timing of the winter event.
For the purpose of this policy, Primaries are streets classified as primary and secondary, which includes state routes, hills, bridges, and the streets immediately surrounding schools. Residentials include tertiary (branches off of Primaries) streets, local (or residential) streets, dead-end streets and cul-de-sacs. For reference to street classification, please see the Snow Removal Priorities Map.
