CITY OF CENTER LINE SNOW REMOVAL POLICY
During Winter Advisories and Storm Warnings, the City of Center Line DPW and Public Safety Departments have already begun preparing its response to ensure that all roads in the community are safe and clear of snow and ice.
The following information is provided to the public, for the effective and efficient response by the City during and after a winter snow/ice event.
During a winter snow/ice event, if roads are slick and there is indication of additional accumulation, the DPW will apply salt to all intersections in the city to ensure those areas are initially safe. City street snow plowing will begin only after 1.5” to 2” of snow has fallen, and will continue during the snow event until the snow stops falling and all streets have been cleared and salted.
Should the snow event be less than 1.5”, the City will apply salt when conditions allow.
Should the temperatures drop below 17 degrees, road salt is not effective, therefore the City will only remove snow once accumulation hits 1.5”, and apply road salt once temperatures rise above 17 degrees.
Residents and Businesses can help keep our streets clear by pushing snow from their sidewalks, driveways and approaches onto grass areas only, and not back into the streets. It is a violation of city ordinance to place any snow from private property onto a public street, by the property owner or their designated snow removal contractor. Property owners may be cited for any violations by them or their designated contractor.
It is highly recommended that property owners refrain from removing snow from their driveway approaches until after the City snow plows have cleared the streets.
SNOW EMERGENCIES WILL ONLY BE DECLARED, BY THE CITY MANAGER, WHEN 6” OF SNOW ACCUMULATION HAS OCCURRED. RESIDENTS SHOULD WATCH THE LOCAL PUBLIC ACCESS CHANNEL FOR SNOW EMERGENCY DECLARATIONS. SHOULD A SNOW EMERGENCY BE DECLARED, PARKING ON ANY CITY STREET IS PROHIBITED, AND MAY RESULT IN VEHICLES BEING TOWED AT THE OWNER’S EXPENSE.

A Citizens Guide to Cold Weather Practices:
Winter brings with it lots of fun activities, like sledding, ice skating and skiing. But winter also means mounds of snow to shovel and layers of ice to remove from our sidewalks and driveways. We often make the job easier by applying deicers like salt. Besides sodium chloride, many deicers also contain chemicals like cyanide. When ice melts, the salts and chemicals dissolve and flow into street drains that lead directly to the river, endangering aquatic life. Here are a few tips to reduce salt use and prevent pollution year-round. Click here for more information
