With cold weather in the forecast, Ferndale Public Works has been applying de-icer, sand and salt to Ferndale streets and preparing our four snowplows for deployment. In 2020, the City asked for help naming their plows and receiving over 2,000 votes and suggestions. After consulting with Public Works staff, the City is proud to announce that Golden Eagle, Plowtallica, SanderYacht and Jam On are ready to hit the streets.
“Thank you to everyone who helped us name our snowplows but don’t stop there,” said Mayor Greg Hansen. “You can also help us by moving your vehicle into your driveway. When cars are parked along the street, some neighborhoods become too narrow for our plows to navigate. Help us help you by moving your vehicle before the snow needs clearing.”
Once the snow arrives, residents can assist by clearing the sidewalk in front of their property, staying home if they don’t need to be out and if they do have to drive, proceeding slowly and carefully.
Public Works staff will be monitoring the snowy conditions and clearing the snow priority routes throughout the weather event. For more information and the snow priority routes, visit www.cityofferndale.org/snow.
