Snow Removal Updates
When we have a snow event, check here for updates on what level of clearing we are at.
CURRENT CLEARING STATUS -TBD (updated at the next snow event)
Please note: time spent on driveway clearing is a maximum of 30 minutes per clearing. This is due to the sheer volume of requests. Public Works receives approximately 120 driveway clearing requests, including church clearing requests per snow event. If your driveway is cleared of snow prior to Public Works driveway clearing arriving, please also let us know so we can efficiently clear all requests in a timely manner!
All County roads will be maintained according to the following priority list:
