During the snow removal season, the Town of Creston works hard to create a safe town for residents and visitors. Residents can help the snow trucks clear the way more efficiently by moving their vehicles off the roads, especially in cul-de-sacs, before the snow falls.
Snow plowing may result in windrows on both sides of the road. The clearing of windrows in front of driveways left by snow plowing equipment is the responsibility of the property owner or occupant.
Residents are responsible for clearing snow from their driveways and the sidewalk fronting their properties. The town is responsible for clearing snow from sidewalks that are on town property.
Road Clearing Priority
The Public Works group is responsible for snow removal and ice control on roadways and sidewalks within the Town of Creston boundaries. Roads are cleared based on their priority status, according to the Town of Creston Snow Removal and Ice Control Policy. For more detailed information please refer to the policy.
Priorities are established to provide the greatest benefit to the majority of the travelling public. When setting the priorities, consideration is given to traffic volumes, road classification, emergency services, road geometrics, terrain, transit and access to amenities.
