Snow & Ice Removal
A crew of thirteen (13) trained operators is responsible for keeping the City’s 421 lane miles of streets and roadways passable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To accomplish this the City has established a comprehensive snow and ice control policy to meet residents’ needs and expectations as well as to ensure the safety of people driving within our community. City streets are cleared in priority order. The City’s present snow and ice control policy establishes the following priorities:

In order to maximize street cleaning efforts the City of Huber Heights has established Article 351.21 of the Codified Ordinances, which authorizes the City Manager to declare an emergency for various reasons including excessive snowfall that may require the removal of motor vehicles parked upon affected streets. Companion legislation to this ordinance is Resolution 96-R-1934 which established a policy that when an extended snowfall in excess of 3" occurs, all motor vehicles located on designated snow routes must be removed in order that snowplows can clear snow from these routes.
