A major storm could take 12 to 16 hours to complete after the storm ends. Cleanup goes on for several days after the storm.
The main roads are always plowed first, then the secondary roads, once those are completed, they plow the side roads. We only salt hills and intersections on residential roads; we are limited to our annual salt deliveries so we must limit the amount of salt we use.
Plows have to make four to six passes on a street to clear it curb to curb. It is best for residents to wait, if possible, until we have finished plowing before shoveling out your driveway approach. We cannot prevent snow from being deposited in driveway approaches and we do not have the man power to clear them out.
Yard damage is inevitable, if you receive damage to your devil strip, call the office to report it, we will send someone out to inspect the damage and make required repairs to your lawn. These repairs may not take place until spring.
Despite the high level of service provided, no guarantee can be given that the roads will be completely clear of snow and ice.
Mailboxes are sometimes damaged or knocked down by snow removal. This is inevitable due to the force and the amount of the snow. If your mailbox is damaged, call the Street Department to report it, we will send someone out to inspect the damage, and either repair or replace your mailbox with a new or partially used mailbox. This repair may take a week or two (depending on the weather and man power).
The culvert pipe is the pipe under your driveway approach. If you notice a sink hole on your approach, you may need to have it replaced.

If the work is being completed by a contractor that may be replacing your drive or approach, a bond and permit must be purchased before the work is started. Once we determine the diameter, you will be asked to purchase a 16 gauge, 20' (no larger than 30') galvanized steel pipe and have it delivered to your home. You will also be asked to order gravel, you may have the gravel delivered to our site, 210 Osceola Ave. if you wish, we will then transfer the gravel on the day of installation. Once the pipe and gravel is on site, call the office to schedule the installation.
