In the case of a snow event, winter maintenance crews are responsible for clearing 92 miles of streets. To ensure an efficient and timely snow removal process, there are several things you can do to help:
- Be patient; plowing the entire city takes time
- Be prepared for winter driving and possible delays due to the weather
- Don't park your vehicle on the street
- Keep children away from curbs and boulevards when snowplows are working
- Keep fire hydrants clear of snow
- Don’t crowd the snowplow; give them room to work
- Don’t pass a snowplow
- Don’t place your garbage container in the street
- At what point and at what time do snowplowing operations begin?
- Does the city plow all roadways located in Oakdale?
- Why do some streets get plowed sooner than others?
- What is the priority for plowing the city’s sidewalks, trails and ice rinks?
- Why do residents living on cul-de-sacs seem to get more snow than others?
- Why does the snowplow come back and fill in my driveway after I’ve already cleaned it?
- Does the city plow out fire hydrants?
- Does the city plow around recycling containers and garbage cans?
- Does the city repair mailboxes that are damaged?
- Does the city repair damage that occurs near the edge of the street?
- Can I push my excess snow into or across the street?
