Snow Plowing Operations
As part of living here in Wisconsin, we all have to put up with snow plowing operations. Watch for snow emergency situations that require extra caution. Part of this inconvenience is plow damage in those subdivisions that have concrete curbing. In the Fall, we assign the drivers to go through their areas and install plow markers along the road edge to help prevent this from occurring. Unfortunately, it isn't always 100% effective. (It is a good idea to have sprinkler heads visible so drivers will not damage your irrigation system when installing plow markers).
If by chance you do notice the grass "shaved" a little bit from the rest of your yard, or you have salt damage, give us a call and we'll put you on the plow damage list for repairs in the Spring. The Streets Division will return when weather permits and clean up the area, install topsoil, seed and cover the area with straw. We ask the resident to make sure the seed is watered regularly to ensure proper seed growth. Please also call our office if you have mailbox damage and see the policy on our website.
We apologize for any inconvenience, but under some circumstances, snowplow drivers have limited visibility (snow and ice tips)If you have questions, give us a call at 780-4609, we'll be happy to help you. For snow plow damage please contact us.
