Help Keep Our City Running During the Minnesota Winter!

The City utilizes a number of winter-season policies to promote safety and efficiency during winter weather events. These policies aim to clear snow from streets, sidewalks, and most trails so that students can get safely to school, residents can get to their homes and jobs, and so that local businesses can operate with as little disruption as possible.

Snow Plowing on City Streets

Once roughly 2 inches of snow has fallen city snow plowing begins on primary snow emergency routes. After the main arteries in the city have been cleared, plowing begins in residential areas. Downtown snow removal, which involves clearing parking lanes and hauling snow out of the downtown, generally occurs between one and three days after a snow event.

Maintaining the plow schedule is top priority of the Public Services Department during winter months. Residents are asked to adhere to the posted no parking signs and the winter parking rules so snow removal activities can take place.

Mn/DOT is responsible for plowing state highways 3, 19, and 246 while the counties are responsible for the county roads. City plows may operate on some of these roads while traveling from one part of the city to another.

The City now plows all trails within the City Limits.  The operation of plowing trails follows the higher priority street plowing.  Once the streets are plowed, then the trails will be plowed by City staff.
