City of Lincoln passes along important 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 street.

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 ordinance.

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.

[Tracy Jackson, street superintendent]
