What are the priorities for snow removal?

Priority 1: Primary traffic streets are usually known as arterial streets and determined to be the high volume, which must be kept open to provide the basic transportation needs for hazardous intersections, medical clinics, fire and police stations, schools, and other safety sensitive areas within our city.

Priority 2: Secondary and residential routes are selected minor arterial, secondary intersections, collectors, bus routes, and residential streets deemed desirable to be maintained as time and storm duration permit.

Priority 3: Streets which are deemed low volume streets such as local residential subdivision roadways and cul-de-sacs. The City will address Priority 3 streets as time and equipment availability permit. Severe weather conditions may delay or impact priority 3 snow removal operations.
