Residents are reminded to do the following:
Remove vehicles from streets.
Shovel snow to the side of your driveway to lessen the amount of snow left at your driveway entrance.
Clear snow from around fire hydrants so they can be easily located during emergencies.
Do not make snow tunnels on or near streets or driveways. Snow plows and other drivers may not see the snow tunnels and could accidently injure someone playing inside of them.
As with all winter weather events, the City’s snow removal crews will continue to monitor the weather and update their response as needed.
