Snow Plow Plans

Village of Downs Snow plowing will start at ~2" of accumulation. The goal will be to have at least one lane open during the storm, except between the hours of midnght and 4 am.  

Depending on the storm and temperature, salt maybe applied to intersections, hills and curves prior to the start of the storm.

Once the storm ends, widening, mailbox, corner and other final cleanup will be performed.  We will spread salt at the intersections and hills after plowing has been completed.

Please do not park along the edge of the road during a snow storm to help expedite cleanup.
