Be patient as snow plowing operations are extremely difficult and time consuming.
Please assist us in protecting your neighborhood by shoveling out the fire hydrant & drainage catch basins closest to your home or business and we would appreciate your assistance by clearing any snow from fire hydrants and catch basins in your area.
Remember the Public Works snow plow operators are working through extremely poor weather conditions trying to make every street accessible for public safety.
Please do not attempt to stop the snow plow! Please do not throw snow into the street!
