This time of year, we occasionally get some snow or ice in the area and on the roads around Jacksonville. When this happens the Jacksonville Public Works Department can be found either plowing the roads, placing sand for traction or a combination of the two. We do have a priority in mind when we are out working the roads during a winter storm. Priorities are:
· Arterial/Collector roads: California, Oregon, N 5th St, S 3rd St, Applegate, etc.
· School areas and bus routes – if school is operating
· Hilly/Steep residential streets – Stage Coach, Wells Fargo, Coachman area, MaryAnn/Pair A Dice area, etc.
· Other residential streets around town
Public Works does not plow or sand alleys, private streets, driveways or streets where it is not feasible for our equipment to get in and get turned around.
