Help snowplow crews prevent property damage by making sure no large objects, including ornaments and planters, are within six feet of the street edge, and fasten your mailbox securely to its post. Damage done to items within the 14-foot right-of-way—sprinkler heads, fences, decorative landscaping, or other objects—is the property owner’s responsibility. Also, please keep fire hydrants and mail boxes clear to assist the City and other service providers.
The City has placed stakes to guide crews past irregular or curved curb lines. If you know of an area that isn’t marked but has been damaged in the past, please call City Engineer/Public Service Director Mark Graham at 651-204-6051.
Vadnais Heights clears snow from streets first, and then from high-volume sidewalks and trails used to serve businesses or schools, or where snowplow deposits are significant along County roads. Next, the City clears other trails and sidewalks.
