Snow and ice removal in the downtown parking lots and alleys is performed by Public Services during the hours of 12:00 a.m. - 7:00 a.m.

During the daytime these downtown sites have high volume traffic and the use of the parking lots and street parking makes it very difficult to do an efficient job of snow and ice removal. After an accumulation of three inches of snow, work schedules will be adjusted to have employees perform snow and ice removal into the center of the streets from parking lots, alleys and street parking areas. This snow will be collected and hauled to a specified storage site by the supervisor in charge. If snow accumulation is about six inches, the department will initiate the use of an outside contractor for the purpose of loading and hauling snow from the downtown area to the specified storage area.
