Private Street Snow Removal Note

There are several private streets that have maintenance issues that are keeping them from being on our list for snow removal service. Two people on each of these streets have been notified by mail that their street is currently not on the snow removal route for this year. Those letters gave the specific reasons as to why they would not be serviced. It gave the contact information for the recipient to call, after the repairs were made, so that Street Superintendent, Jeff Rodenberg could re-inspect the street to place it back on the route for snow removal service.  Only streets that have recently had service with the City are annually inspected for maintenance issues.  Notified private streets are marked with a red asterick.
