DPS follows these established priorities to systematically remove snow and ice from City roads:

Generally, when conditions become slippery or an accumulation occurs the Department of Public Service (DPS) will start salting and clearing the roads of snow.
DPS salts the designated Safe Routes to School, major street routes, state highways, correlating intersections, and stop signs and hills. City residents and property owners are required to clear sidewalks in front of their homes in accordance with the City's snow ordinance. All corporate citizens are responsible for clearing the sidewalks in front of their business. Schools take care of the sidewalks on their property. The City of Grand Ledge clears the snow from the City-owned sidewalks, the non-motorized Widewalk along M-100 and M-43, the Riverwalk Trail, and provides assistance downtown.
Grand Ledge Ordinance #554 requires removal of snow/ice within 24-hours when it reaches three (3) inches of accumulation. Regardless of the amount of accumulation the City strongly encourages property owners to keep their sidewalks clear of snow and ice at all times.
It is not required, but as a courtesy, we ask residents to shovel out any fire hydrants that may be located near your home. Please shovel out 3 feet surrounding the hydrant.
Clear an area to the right of your driveway and shovel snow in the direction of traffic to avoid shoveling twice after City snow plows come through.
If you believe that a City of Grand Ledge plow damaged your mailbox during snow removal, please contact the Department of Public Services at 517-627-2144.
