Snow plowing season approaching
The first snowfall usually occurs in November. Residents can help to make plowing faster and more efficient. When it snows, keep your car and garbage cans off the street. This is required by City code and helps staff plow the full width of streets to keep them wider.
To lessen the amount of snow that gets pushed across your driveway, clear the area to the right of your driveway and place excess snow to the left (when looking at your house from the street.) This gives plow drivers a place to push the next round of snow and reduce pileup at the end of your driveway.
Want to do a good deed while you’re shoveling snow? Consider clearing out fire hydrants and storm drains.
