Plowing & Salting Process

Plowing and Salting Process Page Banner

One Time Snow Events 

During one-time snow events, the Highway Department will plow/salt main thoroughfares and emergency routes, followed by side roads and subdivisions. 

Continuing Snow Events 

During snow events that continue over a few days, the Highway Department’s focus will be plowing/salting main thoroughfares and emergency routes, with single passes through subdivisions when possible. When the snow event subsides, the Highway Department will do a complete clean up of all roads and streets. 


Cul-de-sacs will be cleared by smaller trucks that can more easily maneuver the area. These drivers do their best to place the snow in an unobtrusive area. 


Please understand that our plows cannot keep snow out of residents' driveways. Snow from the roadway is pushed from the center to the edges, and it is the homeowner's responsibility to clear the snow from the end of their driveway, as well as in front of the mailbox. This snow should not be placed back in the street. County Code prohibits property owners to place snow from their property (driveways, sidewalks, etc.) in the street.
