Street Maintenance Updates
Updated: Friday, October 21, 2016
We are currently working 24/7 clearing arterial and collector roads for traffic flow.
If you have questions or need further assistance, please contact the Street Maintenance Dispatch Center at 343-8277.
Snow Removal & Plow Outs
What is a "plow-out?" Typically with an accumulation of four or more inches of snow, we will declare a "plow-out", in which our goal is to have all municipal maintained roads and sidewalks cleared to accommodate traffic flow within 72 hours.
Plow out Declared at this time: NO
Please Note the Following:
Please limit on-street parking in all areas during snow plowing and removal operations.
Snow removal from driveways is the responsibility of the property owner. Snow from driveways cannot be shoveled or plowed into the street right-of-way or onto sidewalks. This is a violation of Municipal Code Title 24.80.090 and could result in a citation.
It is illegal to park vehicles in the middle of a cul-de-sac per Municipal Code Title 9.30.030, A13. Vehicles parked in a cul-de-sac during snow plowing or removal operations may result in a citation and/or towing.
There may be some deviation in the plowing patterns on trash days.
