Wintry weather started late morning on Sunday, March 1, and is expected to last until Sunday midnight. The Streets Department has 85 salt trucks deployed to fight Sunday's storm. Crews will treat primary, secondary and high elevation residential streets. Residents and motorists are urged to use extreme caution while traveling, especially later in the afternoon and evening when freezing rain is expected. The freezing rain will create icy conditions on roadways and sidewalks. Sidewalks should be pre-treated with salt. Be mindful of black ice on roadways as it will appear as moisture. Leave extra space between cars to allow for safe stopping.
ALERT : Feb 26, 2015 - TRASH AND RECYCLING COLLECTIONS
Rear driveway collections have resumed this week. A small number of driveways however remain ice covered and are dangerous. We are monitoring these locations daily and will dispatch collection trucks as soon as the driveways are safe to travel.
Recycling collections are on schedule this week but trash collection is a day behind in parts of the City. Please continue to place your materials out on your scheduled day at the usual location. Any missed trash collections will be picked up the following day.
Thank for your patience. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The Streets Department has compiled a report with an assessment of the current conditions of the City’s historic streets. The intent of this report is to provide the City with objective results that can be used to prioritize historic streets repair investments. >
