Now is the time to prepare for winter driving conditions. City crews are prepping snow equipment, stockpiling supplies, and training staff for the approaching winter season. Our dedicated team of public works professionals work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during winter storms to provide safe and accessible roadways throughout the community.

The City has an established snow removal plan, which prioritizes snow and ice removal efforts to maximize safety and efficiently. Main roadways connecting emergency fire, police, and medical response services are cleared first, followed by secondary transit routes, collector streets, and residential areas.
