The County has a set procedure for responding to winter storms. In an effort to provide the most benefit for the most motorists, the first priority is to clear the arterial (main) roads first. Once those roadways are properly cleared, the snow removal trucks will move to the main subdivision streets. Attention is then turned to the secondary subdivision streets, and finally the cul de sacs. The actual time it takes to get to a particular street depends on many factors, including the severity of the storm, the type of precipitation, the temperatures, etc. If the conditions warrant, County Highway Department crews will work around the clock, using 12-hour shifts.
