Spring may be around the corner, but just in case, here are a few reminders about...snow, parking, plowing, safety, and helpful tips. Providing safe travel on emergency, major arterial and school bus routes is the primary goal. Shoveling sidewalks is a property owner's responsibility. It is unlawful to blow, shovel or plow snow from private property onto a public street. Shoveling snow to the side of your driveway will lessen the amount of snow left at your driveway entrance during plowing. Crews make every effort to minimize the amount of snow plowed into driveways, but because it is unrealistic for operators to lift or rotate plow blades as they pass each driveway, this will inevitably occur. We suggest clearing your driveway several times during a storm or waiting until city plowing activities have ended. The final step of a snow removal operation is to push back the edges to widen the road to allow room for future snow, and this may result in snow in your driveway.
