Why is snow plowed into my driveway?

The angle of our snowplow blades is fixed to the right to plow snow from the centerline of the street to the curb. When there is an opening, such as a driveway, some of the snow is released into that area. It is the resident’s responsibility to remove the snow in the end of the driveway. The snow should not be pushed across or into the street or neighboring yard. You can be a good neighbor by finding a place to locate snow within your property. We appreciate your cooperation in maintaining clear, safe streets in our community!

If you have an unusual amount of snow or large portions of ice pushed into your driveway, please call Public Works at 763-572-3566.
