How does the City determine when to plow?
The City of New Berlin determines the plowing operations based on a number of factors including total snowfall expected, duration of snow event, time of day, ice conditions, and ground and air temperatures. Generally, the City will bring in 5 drivers during the initial portion of a storm or for small winter storms to keep the main roads clear. During larger snow events, the City will call in all available personnel to plow each of the City’s 23 plow routes. The City will make a first pass through local roads to keep the roads passable and will return later to clean the entire roadway. Cul-de-sacs are generally opened with one pass around the edge and then cleaned up fully after the storm. The City plows 630 lane miles of streets and 450 cul-de-sacs.
