My road looks clear, so why do you keep coming back?
There are several reasons why this occurs. Most importantly, during a major snow event of approximately 5 inches or more, passes are made to keep the road open and passable. Once the storm abates, we then return to clear snow all the way back to the curb line or pavement edge. This prohibits the snow from refreezing on the street, making the road essentially un-plowable in the event that another snow occurs in the relatively near future. Additionally, this clears areas that are frequently used for on-street parking. Finally, during heavy snow, the US Postal Service must be provided access to your mailboxes to maintain mail service.
