Eagle Mtn. Snow Removal Policy

PRIORITY 1 – Arterial roads (Eagle Mountain Blvd, Ranches Parkway, Pony Express Parkway, and Sweetwater Road)

PRIORITY 2 – Collector roads, school zones, hills and curves

PRIORITY 3 – Residential, alleyways, cul-de-sacs

PRIORITY 4 – Unimproved roads

The city owns five plows with salt or sand spreaders and they are all currently in service. Due to the high cost of snow and ice removal, dry pavement should not be expected on all streets in all storms. So far this winter, 483 hours have been spent plowing, with 6,953 miles plowed and 693 tons of salt used.

Home owners are responsible for snow and ice removal on sidewalks. No snow or ice should be removed from private property onto roadways.
