Based upon the expected snowfall this season, we wish to remind you of the City's long-standing snow removal and salting policy.
Normally, the City does not plow streets unless the total accumulation of snow is 3 or more inches. Anything less is typically covered by salting operations.
Operations commence at the request of the Police Department or at the determination of the Public Works Director based upon weather conditions.
Major thoroughfares have first priority. The City does not have a "bare street" program for residential areas. In other words, for residential streets, salting is typically reserved for intersections, hill, mid-blocks and curved roadways.
As much as people would like, it is impossible for City to schedule snow removal times to coincide with their respective snow shoveling or snow removal from their driveways. Plowing streets inevitably will put snow on property owner's driveway approaches.
If possible, the major thoroughfares will be plowed and salted by morning. Residential side streets will not be completed until the major streets are completed.
As a reminder the City does not plow or maintain County or State highways located within Glendale. Those streets include North Green Bay Avenue north of West Good Hope Road, West Good Hope Road from North Port Washington Road went to the City limits. West Mill Road, North Milwaukee River Parkway and North Port Washington Road from West Daphne Road north to the City Limits.
The City's 12-person Public Works Department is responsible for all snow removal.
Please have the appropriate amount of patience and understanding with the Public Works Department in this type of climate.
