Snow & Ice Control

Print
During snow and ice storms the City is responsible for clearing all public streets within the city limits. This includes all U.S. and Virginia numbered routes. The City’s fleet of plows and chemical spreaders are on duty 24 hours a day until all City streets have been cleared and made safe. During these activities your safety is our number one priority.

The City crews clear the primary routes first to assure that emergency vehicles can get where they are going safely. Once the snow tapers off or stops crews are sent into subdivision streets. All attempts are made to vary the order in which subdivision streets are plowed from storm to storm so that the last streets to be plowed are not always the same ones.
