Snow plow operations are governed by the Town's Snow Removal Policy. It is Town practice to have all municipal roads plowed at least once every 24 hours if conditions warrant. Lengthy service delays can occur in freezing rain conditions.

Plow Routes

The Town is broken into standard plow routes, so all roads in the Town can be cleared in about twelve hours if all plows are in operation. The number of plows on duty depends on staff and equipment availability and road conditions. If less plows are available, the standard routes are adjusted accordingly.

Plowing Schedule

Depending upon weather conditions, plowing operations begin at 4:00am. Usually, all routes are completed prior to 10am. Weather depending, a second plow pass may be completed in the afternoon, limited to specified roads only. This second pass may  cover all roads under exceptional conditions.
