Don't crowd the plow.
The road behind an active plow is safer to drive on. Give them plenty of room to work and only pass when it is safe to do so.
Change the way you drive.
Drive slower than normal and leave more room between you and surrounding vehicles when roads are wet, snowy or icy. DO NOT use cruise control, brake quickly or take sharp turns.
Make sure you keep your gas tank over full and keep a close eye on road conditions, which can change rapidly. On road trips, take breaks often so you can stay focused on the road.

The Public Works Department will soon initiate a pilot project to inventory all City-owned trash carts. The goal is to update inventory of all City-owned trash carts and begin the process necessary to charge for each cart. Currently, all eligible residents pay a flat fee of $10. In order to fully implement Phase 2 of the new Refuse Collection System approved by City Council in 2020, the Public Works Department will need to have the most current inventory of every trash cart in use.
