McCall Snow Removal-
It’s a Community Effort!
The City of McCall Public Works Team is small but mighty and works hard to provide you with safe passage, plowing more than 50 miles in our community. Here are a few important facts about snow removal and your responsibilities as citizens of McCall.
- In most cases the crew will begin plowing snow when the depth reaches around three inches and is accumulating.
- Snow gates may be used to minimize, but not eliminate, snow berms. The gates are most effective when there is eight inches or less of dry snow and cannot be used when snow is wet and/or heavy.
- The City proactively attempts to mitigate snow berms. Driveways, to include berms across driveway entrances, are the responsibility of the property owner.
- Businesses and residents have a responsibility to dispose of snow on their own property or arrange for removal. Blowing, pushing, ramping, shoving or otherwise depositing snow on any city street or public right of way is against the law.
- Streets will be sanded when conditions warrant and snow has stopped.
- Streets should be clear of cars during snow storms to allow plows to do their jobs. Parking on downtown streets is prohibited between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. during the winter, and on other city streets between 3 a.m. and noon.
