During the winter months when we begin snow removal from the streets, along with salt /sand applications when necessary, we try to get out very early in the mornings, to assure a safer commute to work for the citizens in town. We have a scheduled route that we try to follow every year. We try to clear the main entrances/exits in town first, which are Wyandotte, Palmberg, Main and Miller Street. After these major streets are cleared, then we start on streets closest to the schools, to allow the school buses and children walking to school a safer commute. The side streets are cleared last. If we do receive large amounts of snow , we will try to clear out the wind-row that is piled at the end of your driveways.
