Seasonal Notice - City of Canal Winchester Snow Removal

The City of Canal Winchester is committed to providing safe, accessible streets during inclement weather and encourages residents to do their part by shoveling sidewalks.

The city’s policy for salting and plowing streets is to begin with arterial streets such as Columbus Street, Gender Road, High Street, Washington Street and Waterloo Street. Plowing of arterial streets will be followed by major streets within subdivisions, secondary streets within subdivisions, cul-de-sacs, alleys and then parking lots.

“The city’s street department works hard to keep roads clear during snow events. We appreciate your patience during the snow removal process,” said Mayor Michael Ebert.

Mayor Ebert added, “Keeping sidewalks clear of snow and ice is the responsibility of the property owner.  You can help make sidewalks around your business or residence safer by shoveling a path around your property in a timely manner each time there is snow accumulation. Cleared sidewalks also assist our local police, fire, and EMS during emergencies.”

Additional ways residents can help in the snow removal process include:

  • Do not shovel snow onto streets, alleys, or bike paths.
  • Shovel snow into small piles instead of large piles.  Small piles will melt quicker and are less likely to develop into dangerous ice banks.
  • Do not pile snow beside fire hydrants or dumpsters.
  • Avoid parking on streets during snowy or icy conditions.
  • Clear snow around mailboxes.
  • Help neighbors in need who may be elderly, sick, disabled, or unable to shovel for any reason.

By working together, we can help minimize the effects of snow and ice on our streets and sidewalks.  For complete details about the city’s snow removal policy, visit our website: www.canalwinchesterohio.gov.
