Snow and Ice Control Operations

During the course of a snowstorm, operators and equipment are working around the clock performing snow and ice control operations to provide safe and passable roadways throughout the City. Major streets (red Priority 1 routes) are the first priority in snow and ice control operations. Collector streets (blue Priority 2 routes) are the second priority in snow and ice control operations. Once the major and collectors streets have been completed, designated residential streets on hills (blue Priority 2 routes) and problem areas are completed. All other residential streets will not be plowed unless snow depths on the streets have exceeded 12 inches in a single storm event and a snow emergency has been declared by the City Manager.
