Midvale Public Works snow removal team is requesting your help to provide the best possible snow removal service. City trucks will begin plowing when snow reaches a depth of two (2) or more inches. By observing the following guidelines, you’ll help make winter driving and snow cleanup easier.
No Parking on the Street
Although City ordinance prohibits parking overnight on the streets from November 1 through March 1, we request that, whenever possible, cars not be parked on the street during the day as well. Vehicles parked along the curb may limit snow and ice control services and, unfortunately, snow accumulation can take place during the day as well as the night.
Give Snow Removal Crews a “Break”
Be conscious of snow removal equipment and remember to give the plow drivers the right-of-way at all times. Please be patient, snow will be removed from your street following a significant storm (2 or more inches); however, it does take time. Streets will be plowed on a priority basis with the main arterials receiving top priority. Residential streets are plowed, but not salted.
Remove Snow from Sidewalks
Remember, it is your responsibility to remove snow, sleet, hail or ice from sidewalks adjacent to your home or business in a timely manner. This is extremely important as a large number of school children walk to school in our community. When clearing your sidewalks and driveways, keep the snow that you shovel on your property. DO NOT throw snow into the streets as it creates a liability for you as a property owner.
Keep in mind that residents failing to clean snow or ice from their sidewalks will be notified. Repeat violations will carry penalties.
We appreciate your courteous assistance in making this program work.
