The City removes snow and ice from roads while citizens and businesses clear their sidewalks to ensure safe conditions and mobility for everyone.

Free sand is available at participating community leagues and Roadway Maintenance Yards.

Please clear sidewalks around your property as soon as possible to keep everyone moving safely.

Seasonal parking bans are on designated bus routes and can be declared between November and March with at least 8 hours notice.
