When will the City start snow or ice control operations:
The criteria for the decision on when the snow is plowed are:
Snow and ice control operations are expensive and involve the use of limited personnel and equipment. Consequently, snowplowing operations will not generally be conducted for snowfall of less than three (3) inches.
Snow will be plowed in a manner so as to minimize traffic obstructions. The center of the roadway will be plowed first. The snow shall then be pushed from left to right on two–way streets. The discharge shall go onto the road right-of-way area of the street.
Snow on cul-de-sacs will normally be plowed to the center in an attempt to provide the largest turning radius possible for emergency vehicle ingress and egress.
Damage to a mailbox is a risk that snowplow operators face during their winter plowing requirements. The City will conduct a review of each mailbox damage claim to determine, whether the City has any legal responsibility for the damage and if so, to replace or provide reimbursement for the mailbox.
If the City, in its discretion, determines that reimbursement or replacement is appropriate, the City may:
THE CITY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE for irrigation systems, garbage cans or fences, unless they are hit by City equipment and only then if they have been properly located (outside of the right-of-way) and
installed. ROCKS or POSTS that are in the right-of-way need to be removed before any snowfall to prevent plow damage. Rocks along driveways have to be lower than the road.
IT SHALL BE UNLAWFUL for any person to park a motor vehicle, trailer, mobile home or accessory unit on a public street from the 15th of November to the 1st day of April between the hours of 11:00 pm to 7:00 am. And it is unlawful for any person to park on any City road during any time at which more than two (2) inches of fresh snow has accumulated until such time as the snow removal crew have cleared the roadway. The Anoka County Sheriff’s department or other authorized representatives of the City are hereby authorized to remove any offending vehicle from a City road. Vehicles will be towed and stored at owner’s own expense. Any person(s) violating any provisions of this Ordinance shall be guilty of an administrative offense or petty misdemeanor as defined by Minnesota Statute 609.02, Subdivision 4A.
