Residents are advised to read the below procedures carefully.

The responsibility for keeping the community safe and our road and transportation network accessible during winter weather is shared by the City and its residents. We urge you to do your part for yourselves, your neighbors, individuals pushing strollers or using wheelchairs or other mobility devices, and pedestrians. Doing your part is the neighborly thing to do, it's the law, and it will help you avoid a fine for non-compliance. 

We do our part by following the City's snow removal and snow emergency policies, which are designed to clear streets quickly and effectively during a storm and to provide open, passable streets during and after the storm.
