When and how do we monitor the weather?
From early October to April, City staff monitors roadway and weather conditions 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can respond to winter conditions at any time with a variety of equipment and personnel. Proper and timely response to winter weather conditions is paramount to the safety of the traveling public, the economic viability of the city, and neighborhood livability. The Service Division’s primary source of weather information comes from a commercial satellite weather system called Digital Transmission Network (DTN). This system displays up-to-date weather information and graphics similar to what is on the local television stations.
