The city of Dickinson is asking residents to move their vehicles off the streets this week to ensure easier snow removal.

The Street Department will clean residential streets Tuesday, Jan. 16, through Thursday, Jan. 18. In a recent Facebook post, the department asked residents not to park their vehicles on the street during this time to allow for a "complete clearing."

"While the operators will attempt to minimize the amount of snow left in front of driveways and parked vehicles, it is the owner's responsibility to remove the remaining snow," the post said.

The post also noted that operators will not follow a set route, but will clear the "worst" areas first.

Gary Zuroff, public works director, said in an email to the Press that the post "was for residential areas which we address after our level 1 and level 2 roads."

He said the "worst areas will be those that have drifted snow and have had concerns," but did not specify which roads or areas of the city will be cleared first.

He also said Dickinson has not declared a snow emergency, so no tickets will be issued if people are parked on the streets during clearing. Snow removal will start around 6:30 a.m. each day.

"The public's understanding and cooperation is greatly appreciated by the Street Department," the post ended.

Zuroff said if residents have a road concern or complaint, they can call public works at 456-PWPW (7979). "We will address your concern," he said.
