Draft snow removal policy, mayoral appointment addressed
Going into Monday night’s regular Newton City Council meeting — on an evening when the high temperature had reached 75 F earlier in the day — one would think snow would be the last thing on councilors’ minds.
And while it was the last item of business discussed on the agenda, a proposed snow removal policy burned up most of the council’s time. For the most part, however, councilors were content to listen to the presentation of Streets Superintendent Jody Rhone with little other input.
“The purpose of this policy is to establish and maintain uniform definitions, procedures and expectations concerning snow and ice control operations in the City of Newton,” Rhone said. “It is the goal of the City of Newton to maintain city streets at a safe level of normal winter driving conditions during and after a winter storm event.”
