Be aware: city snowplowing underway

Owners of vehicles parked on road should watch out for signs or check with city to avoid tickets

City crews are plowing residential streets of snow.

Residents are reminded to sign up for snow zone alerts to get text, email and phone call reminders before they need to move their vehicles off the street.

Plowing around schools should have already been completed. Any remaining streets around schools will be tackled this weekend.

Plowing in the city’s snow zones will begin Wednesday on green routes in Snow Zone G. Clearing of grey routes in Snow Zone G will take place March 4.

Plowing will then continue alphabetically through snow zones until complete. Parking restrictions will be in place — possibly for several days — during plowing in each snow zone, which could be a few days at a time.

“It should only take our crews a day or two to plow green or grey routes in each snow zone, but it takes a lot longer if people leave their vehicles parked on the streets,” says city public works manager Greg Sikora.

“That’s why it is so important for people to know the schedule and move their cars.”

Parking restrictions are only in place for the route that is scheduled for plowing, so residents can park their cars on an alternate route while restrictions are in place.

“When we’re plowing green routes, you can park your car on a grey route, which is usually just around the corner,” said Sikora.

“It is the same case for grey route plowing; if you really need to park on the street, you can park on a green route. That’s why we don’t plow green and grey routes in a snow zone at the same time.”
