COUNTY SNOW & SANDING POLICY

It is the policy of McCook County to initiate snow removal operations to maintain traffic as long as visibility is adequate and weather conditions are as such that plowing can be done safely and be effective for at least five hours.

The County Highway Superintendent, or his assignee, has the responsibility for
initiating all snow removal actions using his best judgment considering all prevailing
weather conditions, amount of snowfall, type of snowfall, and what areas are affected
most.  He also may commence operations during emergency situations.

The general practice will be as follows:  When snowfall is at least two inches but
less than four inches all hard surfaced roads will be plowed during normal working
hours, provided that the winds are such that snow remains on the traveled portion of
the roadway.  With a snowfall of four inches or more, all gravel roads as well as hard
surfaced roads will be plowed during normal working hours.  Plowing may commence
before and/or after normal working hours as well as on weekends or holidays as the Highway Superintendent, or his assignee, deems necessary.  The snow removal operations will begin out of the McCook County Highway Shop in Salem as well as remote satellite sheds in Bridgewater, Canistota and Montrose.

The priority of which roads are plowed and in which sequence is up to the discretion of the Highway Superintendent.

The McCook County Highway Department has been directed to sand areas designated by the McCook County Commission.  These areas include:  bridges, steep hills, sharp curves, and intersections controlled by stop signs on all hard surfaced roads on the McCook County Highway System.  Also, other areas maybe sanded as deemed necessary by the Highway Superintendent, or his assignee.

The Highway Department shall have the authority to sand in areas that have been classified as danger areas by the Sheriff’s Department, such as accidents or for emergency vehicles.  This could also include roads on the State System or the Township System.

The Highway Superintendent, or his assignee, shall have the authority to sand before and/or after normal working hours due to adverse weather conditions.

Revision Date:  October 5th, 2010
