CITY OF CORTEZ EXPLAINS SNOW REMOVAL
During the winter season, the city gets many questions on how we remove snow. To better explain the process, see the city’s snow removal policies.
The City uses the following priority system for streets:
- Main Street, Mildred Road, and Empire Street
- Streets around the schools
- Downtown area
- Residential areas
In 2008, an ordinance was passed where downtown businesses are to clean their sidewalks after a storm. Sidewalks shall be cleaned by noon of the second day following the last measurable snowfall.
If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the public works department at the city service center or call us at 970.565.7320.
