Get Your Street Prepared for Winter

Get Your Street Prepared for Winter
Posted on 11/01/2017

With winter right around the corner, there are few reminders for residents and drivers that will help with snow removal, and avoid costly consequences.

One of the most important things residents can do is to trim their trees away from the road. Overhanging branches force plows around roadsides. City code requires that all property owners trim their trees at least 13 1/2 feet over roadways. Without a clear path, plows cannot push snow to the side of the road. Overhanging trees can also cause damage to trucks, incurring great cost.

In addition, residents can help keep roadsides clear during (and especially after) storms by removing garbage cans. Please bring your garbage can in as soon as possible to avoid blocking the plows.

Snow Parked CarsAs always, the city reminds residents and drivers that parking on the street directly before, during and right after a storm is forbidden, and could prevent or delay your street from being cleared. You may also have to pay for a parking violation, or you could be towed.

We appreciate all you can do to help with snow removal.
