You Can Help

Your road maintenance is expensive, dangerous and time consuming. Please help us by paying attention to the following.

  • Catch the bus, carpool or call a cab when possible.

  • If you commute, equip your vehicle with good winter snow tires.

  • Please obey all parking restrictions. Vehicles (cars, boats, etc.) will be ticketed and impounded if left on the right of way.

  • Please obey the posted snow removal signs and remove your car when the street is posted with yellow, temporary “No Parking” signs. Your car will be towed at your expense.

  • Listen to the radio or check our snow removal schedule for snow removal times and areas.

  • Remember that parking on streets that obstructs traffic lanes is not only unsafe, it’s against the law! CBJ 72.12.010.

  • When it starts to snow, park your vehicles off the street.

  • Please remove any obstructions such as rocks, fences or planters along the City Right-of-Way for the winter.

  • Relocate or reconstruct illegal mailboxes to meet standards. If the mailbox was not constructed or maintained to current standards, the repair is the owner's responsibility.

  • Please place garbage cans at least five feet inside driveways away from the edge of the roadway.

  • We remind residents that CBJ ordinances prohibit placing snow or ice on any public street, sidewalk or parking space in a manner that impedes vehicle or pedestrian traffic or makes it unsafe. CBJ 72.24.075

  • Please don’t stack or plow snow over ends of culverts, in ditches or on top drainage structures.

  • Vehicles left parked in areas of snow removal operations can be a big problem.


ALL VEHICLES TOWED DURING SNOW REMOVAL OPERATIONS
WILL BE TICKETED WITH THE OWNER FACING UP TO $60 FINE.
SAVE US ALL TIME AND MONEY AND MOVE YOUR VEHICLES DURING
SNOW REMOVAL OPERATIONS!


Snow removal operations require the use of large, heavy, noisy equipment during periods of darkness and limited visibility caused by falling snow. Our operators are carefully trained. We stress safety at all times. Children love to watch snow removal operations. The large equipment, noise, lights and activity can be very exciting. Although we're glad to have people watch, everyone should be cautioned to stay a safe distance away. The concentration required for efficient snow-removal, combined with the noise and type of equipment used means that operators may not always be able to see small children close by and accidents could result. Please encourage children not to build tunnels or forts in snow berms at any time!
