Snow Removal Guidelines:
The Town of Carbondale has a "Snow and Ice Removal Ordinance". All residents and

The Public Works Department is responsible for the streets, sidewalks and fleet maintenance for the Town of Carbondale. Public Works also coordinates special event street management, ensures Town streets and public right-of-ways are maintained and safe, and assists with emergency readiness plans. The crew also participates in the Carbondale Public Art Commission program with the installation of sculptures for Art Around Town.
