Snow and Ice

Snow Removal Priorities

We do our best to get streets open as quickly as possible. In order to provide the best service to the city, we use a priority system for plowing. For more information, see the snow removal priority map.

  • Priority 1: Arterials considered to be the minimum network which must be kept open to provide a transportation system connecting hospitals, police and fire stations.
  • Priority 2: Remaining arterials and selected collectors, bus routes, and areas around schools
  • Priority 3: Remaining collectors covering major traffic volume streets and selected hot spots such as intersections, hills, and known routes for individuals with disabilities
  • Priority 4: All remaining streets, such as residential and local streets. These streets will not receive regular winter maintenance and will only be plowed if traffic movement is blocked and the higher priority streets are clear

In instances where we are unable to maintain all streets, priority 3 will be dropped first followed by priority 2. Priority 1 streets will be kept open at all times.

Call 970-351-SNOW (7669) with questions regarding snow removal.

Street Sweeping

Street sweepers remove debris from our streets and prevent it from entering our storm drains. Street sweeping also helps us comply with state and federal storm water quality requirements in accordance with National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).

Did you Know?

  • It is unlawful for refuse of any kind or nature whatsoever to be thrown or swept into any street, sidewalk, gutter, sewer, intake, alley, vacant lot or other property. This includes leaves and tree limbs.
  • It is illegal to leave a vehicle unattended within any portion of a street or highway right-of-way for 24 hours or more.
  • Sweeper operators post temporary No Parking signs as needed.
  • Parked and abandoned vehicles can cause dirt and debris to build up causing storm water to back into the street - moving these vehicles help us keep our city clean!

  • Weekly: downtown streets (Fridays, early morning)
  • Monthly: main arterials, downtown alleys, city owned parking lots
  • Five times a year: residential streets east of 47th Avenue, paved alleys
