What are the methods of road maintenance?

There are several different methods used to maintain the roads for safe travel during the winter. At times, the snowfall may not be heavy enough to require plowing, and salt or will be used. In such instances, the salting process will start on and continue until all roads are completed. Other times, snowfall may be heavy enough that trash pickup may be suspended due to unsafe travel conditions in the alley ways. The following guide explains the snow plan by stages of storm severity and applies to all levels of roads: 


  • 0-3 inches: salt / anti-skid, no plowing required 
  • 3-10 inches: salt / anti-skid, plow, Trash remains until suspended  
  • 10 + inches: salt / anti-skid, plow, trash pickup suspended (trash pickup will resume as soon as possible)
