Snow Plowing Operations
As we all know, living in Wisconsin means that we have to deal with snow during our winter months. When snow falls, the City starts our snow plowing operations. We will generally plow and salt our main roads first (examples include Sunnyslope, Grange, Calhoun, Lincoln), then move into our secondary streets and conclude with our cul-de-sacs and final cleanup. The City does not plow County maintained roadways.
In areas that do not have curb and gutter, we place plow guide stakes at various locations to help our drivers navigate the roadways during plowing operations where the edge of the roadway is not visible. If you have underground sprinkler systems near the roadway, please keep the heads up or mark them in fall so that our drivers are aware of them while they are placing stakes.
Although we attempt to minimize lawn damage during plowing operations, some lawn damage will occur during plowing operations. If you notice that your grass has been damaged during plowing operations, please use this link (****USE LINK TO SNOW DAMAGE REPORTING FORM), email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 262-780-4609. The Streets Division will repair the damage by cleaning up the area, adding topsoil and placing seed. We ask that the resident ensures that this area is watered regularly to ensure proper seed growth.
If your mailbox has been damaged due to our plowing operations, please use this link (****USE LINK TO SNOW DAMAGE REPORTING FORM), email us at email@example.com or call us at 262-780-4609. Our mailbox damage policy can be found at this link (****USE LINK TO Mailbox Damage Policy).
County Road Snow Plowing Damage
Waukesha County maintained roads are Beloit Rd, College Ave, Cleveland Ave, Janesville Rd, Lawnsdale Rd, Moorland Rd, National Ave, and Racine Ave. If you have property damage, including lawn or mailbox damage, please contact the Waukesha County Highway Department at 262-548-7736.
If there is a significant snow event, the City may declare a snow emergency during and immediately after the event to help with plowing operations. A snow emergency means that vehicles are not permitted on any street or public parking lot during this time. By declaring a snow emergency, we are able to more quickly and easily remove the snow from the roadways.
