Winter Preparations - Winter activities related to snow and ice control include plowing snow from the roadway and shoulders, and responsibly  applying deicing chemicals to main and collector roads and isolated icy spots to facilitate snow plowing.  Preparation for these activities begins in the summer.  READ MORE

What to Expect- In winter months, as soon as snow begins to accumulate, equipment is dispatched to service main and collector roadways. Main and collector roads will be plowed to bare pavement. Our next priority will be insuring each community road is passable. Passable means that although the road may be snow-covered or snow-packed, at least one travel lane will be accessible with a front-wheel drive car. All-weather tires are a must. If our snowplow driver determines that your street meets our definition of passable, no further service will be provided. READ MORE
