How can you help?
Please keep in mind, crews put forth the utmost effort during snowstorms. Extended storms may present various challenges for our crews, for example, equipment breakdowns and abrupt changes in the weather. To help our crews perform in a safe and efficient manner:
Exercise extreme care, your safety and the safety of other motorists and pedestrians is the highest priority
Travel at a safe distance from snowplows at all times
Do not try to pass snow removal vehicles
Park off-street if possible
Do not shovel snow from your sidewalk and drive-way into the street
Do not attempt to stop a snow removal vehicle or obstruct its path
We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
