The Street Department is responsible for maintaining City streets. Their work consists of road patching, grading, snow removal, and street cleaning.
Snow and Ice Removal
The City of Haysville is dedicated to providing an immediate and efficient response to weather related traffic hazards.
Snow and Ice Removal Priorities:
First Priority: Emergency Routes as designated in the snow route map, all essential municipal & public facilities.
Second Priority: Arterial Traffic Routes, and school zones as designated on the snow route map.
Third Priority: Collector Traffic Routes as designated on the snow route map.
Type I Snowfall
Snowfall less than 2”, or any icing on the city streets
Generally, snow removal is not necessary for all areas of the city. Primary traffic routes may be plowed and treated with salt and sand to maintain the safest possible surface.
Type II Snowfall
Snowfall of 2”-6”
Typically, snow removal begins as soon as practical after snowfall has ceased, depending on the timing of the snowfall event. Every effort will be made to provide safe driving conditions prior to “peak traffic hours”.
Type III Snowfall
Snowfall greater than 6”
The city has a system of arterial and collector streets that link neighborhoods, major arterial routes, and facilities such as schools, etc. Depending on the duration of any snowfall event, it may be necessary to continually clear arterial streets in order to assure public safety. Once snowfall has ceased, priority streets within the city will be cleared before snow removal begins on collector streets.
“Snow emergency” defined
A snow emergency is defined as a point in time when 2” have fallen and it is still snowing or if weather forecasts indicate that additional snow will fall. At that time employees will begin plowing as close as practical to the time the snowfall ceases. The intent is to avoid plowing more than once for a single snowfall. Depending on the amount of snow, our goal is to plow and to clear all arterial and collector streets within 48 hours. Final clean up of areas will take place the next working day. The city is not responsible for snow/ice deposits in driveways or sidewalks due to the removal operations.
In determining priority routes, considerations are given to topography, traffic volumes, and special usage. Heavily traveled routes are given greater priority over less traveled routes. Streets adjacent to schools, medical centers, and commercial areas are given additional consideration.
Necessary county roads and state highways outside the city’s corporate limits will be maintained by the individual jurisdictions with minor overlapping assistance provided by the City of Haysville.
Sanding units will be dispatched to treat priority streets, stop signs, intersections, other problem areas as needed. If the only hazardous condition is drifting snow, there will be no need for sanding, only manual removal. When icing conditions exist, the crew leader may initiate a call out, or the dispatcher will notify Public Works immediately to enact sanding or deicing procedures. All vehicle or pedestrian accidents will be served as a priority.
