snow removal information
Send a link to a friend
[NOV. 30, 2004]
Once again, it is the
snowplowing time of the year, and the city street department would
like to inform Lincoln residents of a few things that will help you,
the citizens, and help the city also.
1. When you are cleaning your driveway,
shovel the snow at the end of your drive to the side (to the right),
rather than into the street where the plow will push it right back.
2. Try not to park on the street
(especially the boulevards) at night so the plow can plow the whole
3. Private snowplows should not be
plowing any city street and should not leave the snow from parking
lots in the street or on a sidewalk. This is a violation of a city
[to top of second column in
4. No snowmobiles or four-wheelers
on city streets. Again this is a violation of a city ordinance. As
snowplow drivers, we can't stop on a dime, and in the past, these
vehicles have almost been run over.
5. Please do not follow too close to
the plows or salt trucks.
Following the above guidelines will
help both the citizens and the employees of the city with snow
removal. The city street department thanks you for your cooperation.
