The county should purchase snowplow attachments which can be affixed to any resident's 4x4 in order to convert it into a snowplow. The county should maintain a list of residents who own 4x4's all over the area who are willing to VOLUNTEER to help plow in emergency situations. The county would bring the snowplow attachment to the volunteer's home, and then the volunteer would be assigned to plow specific side roads nearby their home. Fairfax is a very volunteer-oriented community, esp. when doing so benefits everyone (e.g. having side roads plowed more quickly than VDOT can reach).
