Winter Weather in Hilliard

Posted January 11, 2019 in Streets and Public Service by Anna Subler

Hilliard’s Snow Warriors are responsible for the plowing and salting of all public streets in the city. When the forecast calls for winter weather, crews begin by pre-treating roads with brine to prepare for the storm. Once the snow starts to accumulate, Hilliard Snow Warriors will plow streets by priority until every road has been cleared.

Residents can help city crews by:
• Staying home if possible.
• Giving snow plows plenty of room.
• Keeping the streets as clear as possible — move cars and basketball hoops to your driveway.
• Do not shovel or blow snow into the street.
• Do not shovel or blow snow around fire hydrants or mailboxes.
• Allow extra time to get to your destination.
