The Town of Prescott Valley is ready for the season's first snowfall, said Public Works Director Norm Davis, even as the first snowflakes fell on Sunday.

The town's 13 vehicles for snow removal include four used trucks purchased this year from the Arizona Dept. of Transportation sale, Davis said. The Town obtains many of its snow removal and cinder spreading vehicles from ADOT.

"They're good reliable vehicles and a good value for the taxpayers," Davis said.

The Public Works department works closely with local police to coordinate plowing. A team of trained equipment operators is ready to plow and spread cinders, starting with arterial and collector streets and graduating to residential districts.

During a big snow event, a Public Works staff member will be available 24 hours a day to respond to any emergency situations, and be the central contact for police, public safety and other government staff.

ADOT's 192 snowplows also are serviced and ready, with 450 trained snowplow operators are on alert, and maintenance yards stocked with de-icer materials and equipment.

ADOT's yearly budget for snowplowing and winter storm maintenance is between $4 million and $8 million, depending on the severity of the winter season. Last season was particularly heavy, as ADOT spent about $8.7 million on snow removal efforts.
