Snow Plow and Park Procedures and Residential Ice Removal Guidelines for Salt and Sand

The City's Public Works Department works to provide safe driving conditions for residents while balancing costs of snow and ice control. Street plowing typically begins after the bulk of the snow has fallen. Please keep the following information in mind:
  • Plows will get as close as possible to mailboxes, but the cleaning of the mailboxes and fire hydrants is up to residents.
  • Please do not park vehicles on the street after the accumulation of two or more inches of snow and until after plowing has been completed.
  • Parking is not allowed on any City street between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. year round.

  • The City plows the walks and trails to the best of its ability following the plowing of streets.
  • Refer to the City’s snow plow policy for more information.
Below are a few guidelines from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency regarding salt de-icing at home.
  • Use salt sparingly. To melt ice on driveways and sidewalks, use less than 4 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. One pound of salt fills a 12-oz. coffee mug.
  • Salt stops working when the temperature gets down to around 15 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Clean up extra salt. If you can see sand or salt on dry pavement, it’s no longer working and could be washed away into nearby lakes, harming fish and wildlife.
  • Salt and sand can be swept up and reused.
