This document has been prepared as a guideline for snow and ice removal operations. During an actual storm, conditions may warrant deviation from this plan and a change in priorities.
During January through approximately April 1, each year we assign personnel to a winter schedule. This way we have our personnel spread out. We have someone on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When in a snow event, we utilize overtime where needed. This seems to work well.
