RESOLUTION NO. RS2003-5
A resolution requesting the Metropolitan Department of Public Works to designate certain roads within Nashville and Davidson County as “Snow Routes”.
WHEREAS, some cities across the country have designated certain major streets within the city as snow routes; and
WHEREAS, these designated snow routes are marked with the appropriate signage and are plowed and salted as needed during a snow storm; and
WHEREAS, individuals would know that these “Snow Routes” would be the first streets plowed and salted in the city; and
WHEREAS, it is fitting and proper that the Metropolitan Department of Public Works consider designating certain streets and roads within Davidson County as “Snow Routes” to ensure that major roads are cleared during a snow storm while at the same time conserving government resources.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
Section 1. That the Metropolitan County Council hereby goes on record as requesting the Metropolitan Department of Public Works to designate certain roads within Nashville and Davidson County as “Snow Routes”.
Section 2. That the Metropolitan Clerk is directed to send a certified copy of this Resolution to the Director of the Department of Public Works.
Section 3. That the Metropolitan Department of Public Works is further requested to inform the Council as to the feasibility of and/or actions taken in response to the request contained in Section 1 hereof.
Section 3. That this resolution shall take effect from and after its adoption, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
