Cost Saving Measures

  • Berm removal – – after storm STOPS – DPW has snow blowers to assist with limited berm reduction. A limited number County Service Areas /Zones provide berm removal to residents
  • Cindering – DPW applies cinders on select roads. Not all roads are cindered
  • Anti Ice/Deice products – used in limited amounts. Local mountain weather patterns are not ideal for these types of programs used in eastern states with flatter conditions and more predictable patterns necessary for preparation and timing for advanced application.
  • Equipment is moved from desert areas to snow areas during winter
  • Schedule Shifts in advanced to reduce overtime
  • Seasonal employees and borrowing operators from valley yards
