Winter Reminders and Tips from Blaine Public Works

Winter tips 2023

As the temperature drops and the snow starts to fall, it's important to be prepared for the winter season. Here are some helpful reminders and tips from Blaine Public Works:

  • Fall street sweeping crews are still 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 into 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 social media before, during, and after a snowstorm. 
  • Help plow crews locate the curb by marking the edge with a wood stake. Free wood stakes are available at the public works building.

We hope these reminders and tips are helpful. Please stay safe and enjoy the winter season!
