Public Works Helps Residents Prepare for Winter

Fall Leaves Gray Sky - 300

Here are a few helpful reminders from Blaine Public Works as the city prepares for the winter season.

  • Fall is a good time to check your mailbox post condition. Make sure that the mailbox post is ready to handle the weight of a snow drift.
  • Fall street sweeping crews are out now. Please keep cars and any obstacles out of the road as much as possible to allow crews to do their job.
  • Boulevard tree trimming is completed in the winter months as time allows.
  • After a snowfall do not plow, blow, or shovel snow onto or across any public street. This is against Minnesota state law.
  • After a snowstorm the city roadways are the first priority. Sidewalks and park trails will be cleared after the roadways.
  • Any sod damage caused by city plows will be repaired with new dirt and grass seed in the spring.
  • Blaine Public Works is responsible for plowing only city streets. MnDOT and Anoka County also have plow crews assigned to their roads in Blaine as well as private contractors on private neighborhood streets.
  • The City of Blaine routinely posts plow updates on Facebook and Twitter before, during, and after a snowstorm. • Help plow crews locate the curb by marking the edge with a wood stake. Free stakes are available at the public works building.
