- Emergency Snow Routes / Primary - Thoroughfares and Main Collectors: These roadways are considered to be the highest priority and shall be completed first during plowing operations.
- Residential - Streets and cul-de-sacs not classified as an emergency snow route or primary route will be completed after emergency snow routes/primary routes are cleared. Depending upon the amount of snow and funding, City Staff may utilize outside resources to assist clearing cul-de-sacs.
