*Priorities for application of salt and sand are:
Hills, curves, and intersections on Lakeview Parkway
Hills, curves, and intersections on secondary roads
*Once the snow storm is over and all roads have been plowed the procedure of widening and cleanup begins. This procedure consists of ensuring all snow is removed from the road surface and onto the shoulder. This process is necessary to ensure the snow melt runs into the roadside ditches instead of onto the roads where it can become black ice presenting a hazard to drivers.
*There is no way to plow the roads without causing the pushed snow and ice to get into your driveway. Those folks that like to get an early start might want to wait until your street has been plowed and widened before cleaning off your driveway. Also, you should shovel your driveway snow at the street edge to the right side of your driveway when facing the road. This way when the plow comes by to plow or to widen the already plowed road, you will receive minimal throwback onto the driveway. You should also remember to avoid parking your vehicles on the side of the roadway, this only impedes and slows the process of snow removal.
