The Public Works Department services 34.5 lane miles of paved roadway. In addition to public street rights-of-way, the Streets Department maintains alleys, surface and storm drainage, signage, and streetlight maintenance.
Snow removal operations start in November and usually end in April, depending on Mother Nature. In addition to the Town rights-of-way, sidewalks in the Core Area of Town and a majority of bike paths are included in our snow removal operations. During these operations there are NO PARKING restrictions in place to provide safety to residents and their vehicles, snow removal vehicles, and Public Works employees. Please see the list of NO PARKING restrictions below. All vehicles that are in violation of these restrictions are subject to towing (at owner’s expense) in accordance with Ordinance Section 177-6 of the Traffic Code. We ask that NO PARKING restrictions are followed, so that we can do our best to make the streets safe for travel.
It is the property owner’s responsibility to keep sidewalks clear of all snow and ice. Note that placing, dumping, or pushing snow on to Town streets or rights-of-way is prohibited by Town of Frisco, Ordinance 127-38.
Our goal is to have all streets plowed by early morning for your safety. During plowing operations, snow berms will be created across private driveways. It is the property owner’s responsibility to remove these berms, and place it on to their property. The snow should not be placed back on to Town right-of-way.
Private contractors must place snow on the property that they are plowing. Placing, dumping, or pushing snow on to Town streets or rights-of-way from adjacent properties is prohibited by Ordinance 127-38.

Please be aware that snow removal operations require use of the full width of asphalt and the 20 feet on each side of the street.
