City of Madras
Public Works Department
Each year, the City of Madras Public Works Department begins the snow removal procedures based on the adopted Snow Removal Resolution.
Where snow has reached a depth of approximately six inches and is not expected to immediately melt, the PW Dept may initiate snow removal operations. The snow removal operation may proceed according to the approved plan unless there is a compelling reason to deviate from this plan.
Snow removal will be conducted along streets according to their priority in facilitating the movement of emergency vehicles, school busses and local traffic. The first priority will be those streets indicated on the map as primary routes. The next priority will be those streets indicated on the map as secondary routes. All other streets not indicated as primary or secondary on the map will be evaluated for need by the Public Works Dept. once the primary and secondary streets are cleared.
Snow will be removed from residential streets as time and conditions allow after primary and secondary streets have been cleared and opened for traffic.
