City contracts for snow removal

Snow removal in downtown Sisters is expected to be easier and more consistent this winter under a new City initiative.

The City of Sisters has approved a contract with Tewalt & Sons Inc. for downtown snow removal. The City Council wanted to provide snow removal consistency throughout the downtown to make it more walkable for residents and visitors, and provide sidewalks and parking that are more ADA compliant.

The City is funding this program through the Street Fund; money was budgeted in the FY 2020/21 budget.

The contract applies to the downtown commercial core from Hood Avenue to Adams Avenue and from Pine Street to Locust Street on all public sidewalks, parking areas and alleys, not private. Letters recently went out to all property owners in the downtown core explaining the new process.
