Tips for Residents to Prepare for Winter

Shoveling Snow - 300

Here are a few helpful reminders as the city prepares for the winter season.

  • 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. 
  • Please remember to shovel out around fire hydrants after each snowfall. It is very important for residents and businesses to keep hydrants clear of snow and visible from the street. 
  • Control your use of ice melt to protect area lakes and creeks. Remember shovel first then only use a small amount of ice melt if needed.
