SUBJECT

    WINTER MAINTENANCE POLCIY

 

resolution #009-92

To the extent practicable with due regard to weather throughout the County, the day and the time of day of the inclement conditions, and the number of workers available at the time, winter maintenance will be addressed in the following manner and priority:

 

The first trucks sent out in a snow or ice storm are to sand and/or salt signalized intersections, bridges and railroad track approaches, hills and curves.  During, or following this operation the major primary roads that average at least 1500 vehicles per day are to be bladed and/or salted.  County local roads that average at least 1000 vehicles per day or that have a school or fire department located on the road are to be bladed, sanded and/or salted next.  The remainder of the county primary roads are then treated in the same manner.  The remaining county local roads and subdivision streets are to be bladed only.  Sub-collector street intersections and the local county road intersections, curves and hills are to be sanded and salted.  The same county local roads and streets are not necessarily to be cleared first all the time.  The sequence of clearing county local road and streets may be varied from time to time.
