Wednesday 12/13/2017: The DPW will be out pre-treating the roads in preparation for the forecasted snow today. Please remember to always use care when travelling during wintry conditions.
Here are some friendly reminders from the City of Rochester DPW as we begin our winter snow operations for the 2017-2018 season
Over the next 24-48 hrs, DPW crews will be plowing and salting the roads throughout the city. If residents can place their trash cans away from the curb and roadway, their cans may not inadvertently be knocked over during the snow removal process.
We understand that not everyone can afford to wait but if you can, please wait to clear your driveways until after the city plows have cleared your street.
Please remember to fortify your mailboxes during the winter season. The City of Rochester DPW is not responsible for down mailboxes due to snow removal operations.
Thank you and please remember that if you have any questions, give us a call here at the DPW at 248-651-5165 and we are happy to assist where we can.
