Since 1984, the City of Harlan has been using a pro- gram entitled Snow and Ice Control Program. According to Cox, most cities in Iowa use a similar program, This program clarifies pro- cedures such as personnel, general snow and ice control, snowplowing and emergencies for residents in Harlan. Snow and ice control operations are conducted on a 24-hour basis, seven days a week. Therefore, the PWD/SD are prepared to shift from the normal work week any time it becomes necessary to institute snow and ice con- trol operations, according to the program. Snow removal procedures Personnel are assigned to 12-hour shifts and the 12-hour shifts are continued until such time as the snow has been sufficiently removed to go back to a normal eight hour shift, according to the pro- gram. During a snowstorm, the City of Harlan is divided into three major snow and ice re- moval areas. Each street in the city is classified as prior- ity one, priority two or prior- ity three (alleys) streets. Snowplow operations begin on streets in the priority one category, consisting of those streets that are hospital and emergency routes and major traffic areas, followed by priority two streets and alleys. Snowplowing operations generally do not begin unless snowfall accumulations mea- sure more than two inches and snow is falling and/or weather forecasts call for additional accumulation. Snowfall accumulations of up to two inches are generally handled by salting, sanding, or a combination of salt, sand and calcium chloride, ac- cording to the program. Emergency conditions City-wide snow emergency parking restrictions also will be implemented when snow conditions warrant. In order to facilitate re- moval of snow during a de- clared City-wide snow emergency, parking will be prohibited on north-south streets between the hours of 8 a.m. - noon and east-west streets between the hours of 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. In the event the PWD re- ceives notification of an emergency situation, equip- ment necessary to handle the emergency will be dispatched immediately to assist until the emergency has been re- solved. For more information, questions or complaints re- garding snow removal, please contact Cox at City Hall, 755-5137 or the Shelby County Emergency Commu- nication Center at 755-2121. 8 Pages, December 1, 1989 "We're home owned - We care about our community" weekender NEws ADVERTISER Harlan Irwin-Kirkman school board approve Changes in library By Lynette Hansen Asst.
