After a 1-inch to 2-inch accumulation of snow, crews begin snowplow operations according to pre-determined snow routes. There are 4 routes with 8 vehicles. There are also 2 smaller vehicles which handle cul-de-sacs and dead ends. These routes have been carefully designed to allow for optimum use of available snowplowing equipment and personnel.
Rate of Street Cleaning
All village-owned streets will eventually be plowed, but main streets are cleared before side streets, which are cleared before cul-de-sacs and dead ends. The rate at which the streets are cleared depends on many factors including total accumulation, type of snow (wet or powder-like), temperature and volume of traffic on streets during plow operations.
