Star Lake Township Snow-Plowing Priorities/Routes (updated 11/16/15)

There are approximately 104 full-time residences located on 32 miles of township roads. In determining snow-plowing priorities these residences have identified on a map, and clustered into specific township road groups. The intent is to reach the greatest number of residences in the shortest amount of distance/time in an efficient manner. Adherence to this routing will also insure that ALL Roads are serviced.  Based upon the above criteria the following route priorities have been determined:

This routing priority may be changed/deviated from based upon the judgment of The Snow Plow Operator, or upon specific direction by the Town Board. However, it has been designed to clear the roads serving the most township residences & priority school bus routes in the most efficient manner. This route measures approximately 70 miles, and should take approximately 6 hours to complete, depending upon conditions.  Any changes to this routing should be for a very good reason.
