February 8-9 Snow Event

We are expecting this winter's largest snow event overnight and through Friday the 9th. We ask that all residents keep parked cars off of the street during this event to allow the snow plows to efficiently clear the streets. Your continued cooperation in keeping the streets clear during snow events is appreciated.


Snow Clearing Notice

If you have been wondering why our streets have looked a bit different than they normally do after snow events lately, it is because there is a regional salt shortage. This winter has brought us a greater than average number of small snow events, which has increased salt usage throughout the region leading to the current shortage.

In order to conserve our remaining salt stock, we have reduced the amount of salt that we are applying to City streets when they are being cleared.

From now until the end of the season we will be applying salt to parking lots and intersections and plowing the remainder of City streets during normal snow events. This means that there will likely be a compacted layer of snow on streets where they are plowed. When icy or slippery conditions exist, we will be applying salt on all streets in the interest of safety.
