Updated: Oct 29
Updated with the correct phone number for Mike Markie.
Winter is here! Your friendly, volunteer, LRSA board is in charge of winter snow removal and road maintenance/safety. Please review these frequently asked questions before contacting your Valli Vue LRSA Board:
Q: When will the plows be out after a snowfall?
A: After 3” or more of snowfall. Please make sure your cars are off the roadway and no other obstacles are in the way of the snowplows.
Q: What if there is less than 3” of snowfall?
A: Plows will be sent out after two consecutive snowfalls of less than 3”
Q: I have an issue with the snowplow service. When should I report and to whom?
A: Please give our contractor time to clear driveways after they plow, especially after high snowfall events. They will come back to clear roads and push back ditches if/where needed.
If you have an issue or urgent concern, please text/message Mike Markie, LRSA Board Member, at 907-315-0952. Be sure to include your address in your text/message.
Q: I have a private contractor for my driveway snow removal. Are there any restrictions or things I should know?
A: Snow may not be pushed across the road; it must stay on your property. Excessive snow creates issues for road graders and potential hazards for drivers. The Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) can issue fines for noncompliance.
Q: I can’t get to my mailbox after the roads have been plowed. Whose responsibility is this?
A: It is a homeowner’s responsibility to keep mailboxes clear for mail delivery.
Q: Why are there sometimes delays in snow removal?
A: There are very few snow removal companies left in Anchorage. Our contractor takes care of 18 other subdivisions. Please be patient.
Q: What is a LRSA board?
A: LRSA’s are service areas established by the Anchorage Assembly to provide limited road maintenance services for rural roads on the Anchorage hillside. Each service area has a locally elected Board of Supervisors (Board). These positions are volunteer (unpaid).
For more information about LRSA’s, please visit Municipal Road Maintenance Service Areas LRSA/RRSA (Limited Road Service Area/Rural Road Service Area) For a map, please visit Valli_Vue-LRSA.pdf (muni.org)
