Staff will evaluate the weather conditions during each snowstorm and will dispatch snow removal crews to impacted areas as need. Priorities include arterial and collector streets, critical facilities — such as medical offices and the fire department — and our schools. Designated problem areas, such as hills, roundabouts and intersections, are also made a priority.
It must be recognized that, although this plan sets general guidelines to be followed, each snowstorm has its own characteristics with variable conditions, such as air and pavement temperatures, wind speed and direction, precipitation rates and types, extreme temperatures, timing, duration, and traffic activity. This plan must remain flexible and take into consideration these variables. Snow & Ice Control Plan
Snow plow drivers will make every effort to avoid plowing snow onto sidewalks and driveway entrances. However, in the process of removing snow from the roadways, there may be times that this cannot be avoided and sidewalks or driveway entrances may become covered. Sidewalks must be cleared within 24 hours from the end of the snow storm per Sec.11-7-10 of the Municipal Code.
Residents are required by the Town of Windsor Municipal Code to have their sidewalks cleared within 24 hours of the end of the snow storm, per Sec.11-7-10. If you are concerned about unclear sidewalks, contact 970-674-6400 for the Code Enforcement team at the Police Department.
It is the goal of the town to plow streets systematically and efficiently. When snow plows are moving from one location to another or are returning to refuel or load more de-icing material, they travel with the plow blades up.
