Otsego plows approximately 134 linear miles of city roadway which equates to 311.1 actual lane miles. Crews also plow 160 cul-de-sacs, 23.4 miles of bituminous path, and 1.9 miles of sidewalk. Plowing activities begin whenever road conditions make driving difficult and are also dependent upon the time of day, current snow depth, and forecast.
Larger roadways and collector streets are plowed on a priority basis followed by residential streets. Cul-de-sacs are plowed curb-to-curb after residential streets are cleared. Sidewalks or paths near schools are cleared after roadways are cleared.
Parking on city streets is prohibited after a snowfall of 2.0 inches or more until after the street has been plowed to its full width. There is no parking on a public street between 2 am and 6 am between November 1 and April 30.
Please place all recycling bins behind the curb line to lessen the possibility of damage or tipping during snowplowing operations. Plow operators will not set up bins if they are knocked over.
Property owners are responsible for the removal of snow, ice, and other debris from concrete sidewalks adjacent to their property within 36 hours after the snowfall has stopped. Residents are encouraged to not shovel their sidewalks until after the streets have been plowed.
