Winter tire in snow

Road Maintenance

The City's winter road maintenance consists of plowing, windrowing, sanding, and hauling snow from priority 1, 2, and 3 roads. 

The City also contracts private crews to complete residential snow clearing when a significant snowfall occurs, or snow accumulates.
