Snow removal, sanding, and deicing is performed in the following order:

  1. Main Arteries

  2. Residential Streets

  3. Dead Ends and Cul-de-sacs


Mailboxes must be installed according to CBJ Standards #116 and #117. Report damages by May 1st.


Ensure obstructions are not placed in the CBJ Right Of Way (ROW). Items can pose hazards to snow removal operations.


To facilitate snow removal operations, obey “No Parking” signs. Please avoid parking on the street following a snow storm. Keeping the street clear of vehicles will make it easier to get the street plowed.


While operators do their best to avoid placing excess snow on property owner’s driveways, it is the property owner’s responsibility to move the ‘berm’ if necessary. Please do not place the snow back in the road.


Owners and/or occupants are responsible for removing snow/ice from adjacent sidewalks.
