A Friendly Reminder
Winter ordinances are still in effect through the end of February.
- Do not park vehicles of any kind on the street between 12-6:00am.
- Do not obstruct sidewalks and clear snow from sidewalks adjacent to your property within 24 hours after a storm.
- Trim trees along the roadside adjacent to your property up to 14 vertical feet from the top of the curb.
Baseball, hot dogs and apple pie -- we don't just say it, we live it! Kaysville is the type of city people love to call home. An active community where traditions are kept, families are valued, and citizens enjoy a sense of belonging and the spirit of community.
We're uniquely situated and conveniently located "in the middle of everything." Kaysville isn't just a great place to live, it's a great place to do business. Great accessibility and low taxes are just some of the benefits our businesses enjoy. It's obvious why Kaysville has become Utah's Hometown. Come see what all of the fuss is about.
Winter is again upon us and Kaysville City is hard at work with snow removal activities. While Santa Claus was hard at work delivering presents in the early hours on Christmas, over 12 public works personnel mobilized their equipment and started plowing snow at 2 AM and didn’t stop until 4:30 PM that day.
Here in Kaysville, Public Works plows roughly 200 miles of public roadways and Parks and Recreation clears over 10 miles of public trails and sidewalks adjacent to City properties (Main Street from 200 North to Fruit Heights and 200 North from the 600 West to Main Street are maintained and plowed by UDOT). Within Public Works, we will start salting the roadways if the forecasts and observed weather indicate a mild storm, small accumulation or slick conditions; if accumulation is significant or if storms seem more severe, the City’s plow drivers will then start pushing snow off of the roadways.
When plowing commences, drivers focus on main roads first and then start moving into neighborhoods, finishing up with smaller streets, stub roads and cul-de-sacs. For a short duration storm of less than 3 hours, a fully staffed public works crew can plow most of town within 13-15 hours. As a City, our goal is to have all roads and trails/sidewalks cleared within 24 hours of the cessation of snow fall. Difficulties with this goal do arise, though, as 24 hours can turn into 48 or even 72 hours for a myriad of reasons. Some reasons are difficult to control, such as roads being heavily trafficked before plows arrive, becoming packed and icy. However, there are things that the general public can do (which we City employees are sincerely grateful for) to assist with our goal.
1. Ordinance 6-2-5(8) prohibits any vehicle, trailer, etc. to be parked on any street between midnight and 6:00 a.m. from November 1st to the last day of February of every year. Vehicles in violation of this ordinance may be ticketed by the Police Department.
2. Ordinance 9-2-10 prohibits the obstruction of a public sidewalk or trail. Residents with sidewalks adjacent to their property are required to clear snow from the sidewalk no more than 24 hours after snowfall has concluded. In addition, trees along the roadside must be trimmed vertically from the top of the curb up 14 feet and garbage/recycling cans must be removed from the roadway/sidewalk unless 24 hours before or after pick-up.
3. Ordinance 9-2-3 prohibits the placement of ANY snow or other debris in the roadway. Especially after a road has been plowed, when citizens push, shovel or blow snow out into the roadway, it creates obstructions that will typically freeze and create a risk to people and equipment. In addition, as plow trucks try to clear along the edge of the roadway, this material often times ends up right back in the drive way. When snow ends up back in driveway approaches, it is not intended to be malicious, but there is simply no way for a driver to realistically prevent that. Drivers are instructed to reduce speeds if excessive amounts of snow are being projected onto roadside properties, however sufficient speeds must be maintained to keep enough momentum for pushing.
Our priority is, and always will be, the safety of Kaysville City residents and personnel. If residents ever have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact me directly at email@example.com or at 801-544-8112.
I was born and raised in Kaysville and I appreciate any input from residents or other City stakeholders. Thank you for all that you do in helping make Kaysville the wonderful place that it is to live and work.
Public Works Director
Keeping streets clear of winter snow is a huge responsibility, one that is vital in maintaining safety for motorists and pedestrians. The Kaysville City Public Works Department does a great job to plowing excess snow from city streets. However, in order to do their job effectively, they need your help.
PLEASE check the trees located in the park strip and behind sidewalks around your property for low-hanging branches. These can obstruct views, especially when laden with snow, and cause problems for drivers. Low branching trees and shrubs make it difficult for snow plows to clear the snow from curb to curb and can cause problems for street sweeper, garbage trucks, and delivery vehicles.
Per Kaysville City Ordinance Chapter 9 of Title 2-10, Kaysville City crews need your continued assistance. Be advised that by December 15, all trees should be trimmed back in a manner acceptable to the individual property owner that also clears a path for snow plows and other city maintenance vehicles. The standard required is 14 feet in height from the top of the back of the curb. This will enable large equipment to drive underneath the trees to maintain the city streets. After December 15 in those areas where limbs continue to impede public works activities, Kaysville City crews will return and trim the applicable trees. Please be aware that city public works crews are not certified arborists and will take special care to trim trees to meet height requirements only and will not trim trees for beauty or tree health. If individual residents want to contract with a professional tree trimmer or to trim the trees themselves but can’t complete this task by December 15, please contact Amanda or Stacy at 801-544-8112. The applicable address will be added to the “do not cut” list.
If you have questions regarding this matter, please contact Kaysville City Public Works Department at the number listed above. We appreciate all that our residents do to maintain their private property, as well as the city right of way and park strip. Thank you for your cooperation.
