[ARCHIVED] Geneva Earns 2014 Snowfighting Award

Geneva was one of 63 communities in the United States and Canada to be named a 2014 Safe and Sustainable Snowfighting Award winner from the Salt Institute.

The City has received national recognition for the second consecutive year for excellence in environmental consciousness and effective management in the storage of winter road salt.

Geneva again earned high marks on the Salt Institute’s checklist that graded safety and service, equipment, materials usage, snow plowing performance, tactical operations before and during a storm, storage and safety, and environmental measures.

The City had plenty of opportunities to put those procedures into practice in 2014 with one of the worst winter seasons on record. The Public Works team plowed more than 70 inches of snow during 40 various winter weather events last year. Plow operators used 3,700 tons of salt to keep Geneva’s 244 lane miles safe for motorists.
