Need to know: Snow plowing
Michiganders often joke that if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes and it’s guaranteed to change. Winters may be mild or severe, but snow is always in the forecast.
Lathrup Village’s Department of Public Service (DPS) plows all residential streets whenever three or more inches of snow falls.
