CITY OF ROCK CREEK

SNOW REMOVAL POLICY 

  1. Dispatching of snowplow: The city will not dispatch the snowplow until after the snow fall has stopped. During extended periods of snow fall, exceptions may be made. The snowplow will not be sent out in situations that may be hazardous due to restricted visibility. The snowplow will not be dispatched if the snow fall does not exceed a total of 3 (three) inches. If snow fall stops during the night or early morning hours, the plow will be dispatched at 5:00 AM.  The goal of the city is to have all roads passable in a reasonable amount of time.

      2.    Operations: Generally the clearing of roads will consist of three phases.Making the roads passable.

  1. Widening the roads.
  2. Cleaning up, depending on the situation more than one phase may be accomplished at one time.

      3. Personal Properties:

           a. Mail boxes and fences damaged during snow removal will be evaluated on
                a case by case basis. Only those that are properly located and installed,
                damaged by actual contact with city equipment will be repaired at the
                city’s expense.

            b. City residents are reminded that it is unlawful to plow snow from driveways
                  onto or across public roads. Piles of snow left on or near the road can freeze
                  into a solid mass, creating a hazardous situation for vehicles and
                  snowplows. Accidents and damage caused by snow piles placed
                  in the roadway may result in liability to the property owner. Piles of
                  snow increase the chance of drifting snow onto the roadway.

            c. Residents are reminded to remove parked vehicles from city roads
                 to assist in snow removal.

            d. The city vehicles will not attempt to remove stuck vehicles from city
                 ditches, snow banks or any other impediment.

            e. When directed by the road supervisor or the sheriff’s department,
                 the city will make every effort to make emergency plowing.

        4. Information: The city will be plowing roads on a rotating basis to be
            fair to all the residents of the city.

                           YOUR SAFETY IS MOST IMPORTANT.  
      PLEASE KEEP YOUR CHILDREN AND PETS AWAY FROM THE SNOW PLOW
      AND OUT OF THE ROAD.
