Snow Plowing and Salting

Published on Wednesday November 30th, 2016

~ by Municipal Services

The update on our plowing and salting as that crews were out salting at 4:30 and after 1 hour we pulled the salt trucks off the road and called the plows out and which were on the roads roughly around 6:00 am we are just getting the salt trucks out now again behind the plows to try and cut the packed snow creating washboard effect on roads and the salt trucks should be back on the road around 8:15 am.   Please be reminded that plowing takes approximately 5 hours to complete so some areas will not see a plow until 11:00 a.m. or so. 

 

Due to school closures the sidewalk plows have been delayed in starting clearing and salting until the roads effort slow down.  The road clearing pushes the snow back onto the sidewalks which makes the clearing of sidewalks right now fruitless.
