SNOW REMOVAL

January 2017

 To Davison City Residents,
 
 

Please receive this information as an outline of our policies and procedures for snow removal during and after a snow event.

 The city has a state highway (M-15) going right through town, which holds the highest priority for snow removal. The city is compensated by the state to make sure that M-15 is first for salting and plowing. This process may be completed several times during a snow event, in order to keep it cleared and safe before we can get to other streets, even once.

 With the way we complete our routes, there are some local streets that get done while we are plowing major streets. This only occurs because we do not want to back up a large dump truck to turn around. It is safer and quicker to go around a block to get back to the major street route. This is why you may see one of our plow trucks go down a street in your neighborhood, even though your street did not get done.

The city has several dead end streets and cul-de-sacs within our local streets.  Due to the nature of their design, they must be cleared differently than a straight through street.  It takes much longer to clean a dead end or a cul-de-sac than a main street, and a truck may have several of these to do in one area.  

We typically do not put salt down on local streets.  We do salt at stop signs (intersections) and cross walks. However, if you think there is an icy street in your neighborhood you can call city hall (810-653-2191) and report it.  We will do all that we can to address it.
 
Along with all city streets, the DPW must also clean the downtown area, including sidewalks and parking lots maintained by the city.  All of this is completed with 7 employees.  Please understand that even though at certain times you may think we don’t get to your street in a timely manner, we will get there as fast as we can.  Anytime you have a question or concern, please feel free to call us.

 Thank you for choosing the City Of Davison to call home!

Respectfully,

 Ed Brown
DPW superintendent
