Snow Removal Route Map
(Main Routes are BOLD)
The City has an 10 man street department (4 men from the Parks Department will help with snow removal) for a total of a 14 man snow removal operation.
There are 208 Streets in the City.
The City removes snow from 55.26 miles of street.
Off hours call outs are made by a private weather forecasting service contracted by the City for 24 hour notification capability.
If more than 4" of snow are forecast shifts of 6 men will be placed on the job.
The crews have to concentrate first, on the main routes before clearing and salting subdivision streets.
During removal, there is one truck per route concentrating on the main routes first, then the secondary routes before the second pass will be made.
Cars parked on the street provide real access problems for snow removal trucks. Please see to it that your vehicle is not parked in the street during snow events.
Cul-de-sacs take extra time and care to service.
We cannot service cul-de-sacs with cars parked in them.
The City cannot provide private service for driveways.
State and County routes are not cleared by City crews. These are serviced by the respective jurisdiction.
Private Street Snow Removal Note
There are several private streets that have maintenance issues that are keeping them from being on our list for snow removal service. Two people on each of these streets have been notified by mail that their street is currently not on the snow removal route for this year. Those letters gave the specific reasons as to why they would not be serviced. It gave the contact information for the recipient to call, after the repairs were made, so that Street Superintendent, Bob Riggs could re-inspect the street to place it back on the route for snow removal service. If you live on the following streets, you are on a private street that will not have snow removal service from the City of Sunset Hills:
Birch Tree Lane (off Eddie & Park)
Bird Haven Lane
Cottage Ridge Lane

Friendship Ridge Lane
Little Baish Lane
