Snow Routes and Snow Removal
Snow Routes:
If you reside on a posted snow route, please remember that parking restrictions automatically go into effect after two inches of snowfall. Parking is not allowed on these streets until the storm passes and the street is plowed.

Don’t Crowd the Plow
A snow plow operator’s field of vision is restricted. You may see them but they often may not see you. Please give these trucks plenty of space to do their job. A safe practice is to keep a distance of fifty feet between you and a moving snowplow.

Check out our snow policy
Our complete snow policy is available here . In it you will find our detailed policy with all the information you need to know about our snow plowing operations.
