Snow Removal

During the winter, our major focus is on snow removal. When it snows two inches or more, our goal is to have all city streets plowed within an eight hours. 

Winter Reminders

Please help our plows be as effective as possible by following these rules:

  • Winter parking rules are in effect from November 1 to April 1. During this time, parking is only allowed on one side of the street.
    • On odd-numbered days, please park on the side of the street with addresses that end in an odd number. 
    • On even-numbered days, please park on the side of the street with addresses that end in an even number
  • Do not park in a way that impede snow removal efforts. If you notice your car has been plowed around, please move your car to the side of the street that has been plowed to the curb.

Thank you for helping our plows keep our streets clear of snow!
