Your City crews have five routes that correspond to the five large snow plowing vehicles that we have. Each route includes main roads (Main St., Route 49, Route 40, Old Salem, etc...), collector streets and small streets and alleys such as cul-de-sacs. The first priority during any winter storm event is to keep the main streets open in each area so that emergency vehicles can travel to any area of the City. The next priority is to clear the next level of streets so that people can get in and out of the subdivisions. The final areas that we clear are the alleys and cul-de-sacs. We will always attempt to reach these areas within 24 hours after the storm has ended. We may come in and make a single pass through a cul-de-sac so that people can get in and out without the entire bubble being cleared. Once all areas are opened we will then go back and “push back” intersections and roads to make travel easier.
