Snow and Ice
Depending on what type of winter event happens the Street Department may pretreat the hills, bridges, and overpasses with a salt brine solution. Once snow has accumulated to two inches or more on the roads, plow trucks are dispatched for snow removal. When certain sections of roads become ice packed, trucks are dispatched to spray a enhanced salt brine solution in order to deice the area. Please refer to the Snow Removal Procedures under the quick links tab for additional information.
