Kremmling urges citizens to contact town before plowing in right of way

Grand County, Colorado

Kremmling, Colorado, residents who plan to shovel the right of way themselves are encouraged to contact the Public Works Department or Kremmling Police for instructions, said Police Chief Scott Spade.

The reason is because snow piles up on street corners, near stop signs, and covers fire hydrants.

“The issue we’re running into is that virtually everyone in town has a plow of some sort, and they take it upon themselves to actually plow the right of way,” Spade said. “The vast majority of any of the issues we’re (running) into is where other people are plowing the town’s right of way to provide themselves parking.”

However, they are working with those individuals, and correcting where they put their snow.

“Between the Police Department and Public Works, we’ve worked on removing vehicles and getting as much of the right of way done as possible,” Spade said. “Feel free to contact the Police Department or the Public Works, and say, ‘I’d like to plow my right of way, where should I put it?’ It’s a given it’s going to happen. People are going to plow those rights of way. So it’s much better that we give them a place to put it … So that it’s less work for the public works to take care of it.”

The Police Department can be reached at 724-3318 or Public Works at 724-3249.
