GOAL OF TOWN SNOW REMOVAL SERVICE

The Town of Johnstown’s Snow Plow Plan prioritizes and identifies primary routes and secondary routes as designated roads to be plowed due to snow accumulation and icy conditions.  Town Staff has a large area to cover with limited Town resources. All other residential streets will only be plowed after snowstorms that produce over 6 inches of snow within one 24-hour period and after the Tier 1 and Tier 2 routes are safe and completed.


Snow Removal Tiers

Tier 1 Roads - Emergency routes and major arterials used by emergency services to access hospitals and schools. This is the priority for Town plow drivers.
Tier 2 Roads - Roads that connect local roads and streets with arterials and the designated in and out route through each neighborhood.
Tier 3 Roads - Residential streets will be plowed after snowstorms that produce over 6 inches of snow within one 24-hour period. Residential streets will only be plowed after Tier 1 and Tier 2 streets are completed.


Snow Removal Expectations

Category 1 Storms - Between 0-6 inches of snowfall within 24 hours, Tier 1 and Tier 2 roads are plowed/de-iced. No Tier 3 roads are treated/cleared.
Category 2 Storms - 6+ inches of snowfall within 24 hours, snow clearance is prioritized for Tier 1 and Tier 2 roads, Tier 3 roads will be treated/given a single pass when Tier 1&2 roads are safe for travel. No private roads or alleys will be managed by the Town unless used to accommodate Town garbage service pick up.
