Crosslake Council discusses snowplowing, Community Center sound system

In a sure sign of winter coming, the Crosslake City Council approved a new Snowplowing Policy at its regular meeting held Monday, October 9 at City Hall.

Public Works Director Ted Strand recommended the policy which outlines when the city crews will clean city streets of snow, which streets will be cleaned first and what happens when plows cause property damage to mailboxes. In those instances, mailboxes will be repaired or replaced at the expense of the City. However, damage caused by the weight of snow is not the responsibility of the City. The City assumes no responsibility for damage to personal property placed in the public right-of-way such as underground lawn sprinkling systems, exterior lighting systems or similar landscaping.

According to the policy, City crews “will make every attempt to minimize the amount of snow deposited in driveways, but the amount can still be significant. City personnel do not provide driveway cleaning. When moving snow off of private property, do not push or blow the snow back onto the street. This unsafe act is against Minnesota State Law.”
