The Senior Snow Removal Program is funded by a Community Development Block Grant granted to the City of Mt. Shasta. The program is administered by Great Northern Services and independent contractors are hired to perform snow removal along city streets. The program is open to eligible seniors (60 and over) and disabled individuals living within the city limits. To be eligible an applicant must reside at the address year-round, and there cannot be anyone under the age of 60 living at the residence who is physically capable of removing snow.

Call Heather Solus, Community Services Director at Great Northern Services with any questions at (530) 938-4115 ext. 128.
