Minnetonka Public Works is responsible for plowing and maintaining city-owned streets throughout the winter.

Citywide snow removal

Citywide snow removal occurs with two or more inches of snow accumulation. Bare pavement is not the goal of city snow removal efforts. Roads are cleared and then treated to promote melting of any remaining snow.

Plows are also dispatched for lighter snowfalls to ensure the main roads are free of snow and ice.

Salt, road treatments and sand

The city responsibly uses salt, road treatments and – in certain situations – a limited amount of sand to improve winter driving conditions and assist with snow removal.
