With snow all around us, there is much cleanup to do.
Draper City Parks crews have been working as quickly as possible to remove snow from City-maintained sidewalks. About 90% of these sidewalks will have been plowed by the end of the day today, with the rest scheduled to be completed by tomorrow.
Snow plows continue to make progress clearing streets and with a break in snowfall have been able to move on to Priority 3 zones. We appreciate your patience as plowing efforts continue. Drivers are not able to return to clear windrows (the buildup of pushed snow at the edge of driveways). One way residents can help is to pile snow they have shoveled on the left side of the driveway as facing their home, in lieu of placing it on both sides at the end of the driveway. Doing this will help snowplow drivers avoid carrying piles from the “upstream” side back across driveways.
As a reminder, per City Code, residents are responsible for clearing snow from sidewalks abutting your property within 24 hours after snow has ceased falling. It is a violation to deposit snow, ice, or any other material onto city streets.
It is important for the fire department to have quick access to fire hydrants. Please help keep hydrants clear by removing any snow and ice from the hydrant, clearing about three feet around it, and clearing a path from the hydrant to the street.
With this much snow, many people are out recreating in it. Please remember that snowmobiles and ATVs are not allowed on City paved trails or park fields.
That was quite a storm this week and more snow is predicted next week so we will continue working together as a community to manage it. We appreciate all those we have seen and heard about who have been rendering assistance.
