Each street in the Village has a designation as a priority one, two or three street.
Priority One: Defined as arterials, collectors, emergency routes and school routes (on school days). These streets receive more frequent plowing and/or additional deicers applied, primarily due to heavier traffic volumes. Under most conditions, these streets are plowed curb to curb and deicers applied before priority two streets begin.
Priority Two: Residential, non-primary routes (includes cul-de-sacs) which typically do not have heavy traffic volumes. Generally cleared after the priority one streets are complete. Snow is plowed curb to curb.
Priority Three: Alleys are cleared toward the end of snow events.
Snow plowing of various public, commuter and Parks Department parking lots is performed by a contractor hired by the Village. Snow plowing of the lots is usually completed during the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 8:00 within the 24 hour period when there is minimal traffic and cars parked.
