If the streets are not passable because there's less than 6" of snow and the city refuses to plow the streets until there is at least 6" of snow, then the city is not doing their job and they need to re-think their policy that concerns the amount of snow that is required to fall in order for them to get out the snowplows.
Yes, they need to be plowed. Because if they are not, they become sheets of ice as cars repeatedly drive over them if the temperature doesn't subsequently rise above freezing.

FTR, our HOA will sometimes commission private snow plowing if there is more than 3" (I think that's the cut-off), since the city is slow to get around to all the neighborhoods. And ours is known to be one of the last ones because so many people park on the street, so it is difficult for the plows to navigate. Either way, though, you shovel your own driveway and sidewalk (or not).

Probably the easiest/best way to handle snow on private areas is just to hire someone ahead of time for the season -- be it a snow removal company or a teen in the neighborhood.
It's worth adding that Indianapolis doesn't get anywhere near the amount of snow Wyoming does. I don't think we've had enough snow this winter to make a snowball.

Well, that's no longer true! HOA waited for snow to quit falling, plowed the streets then cleared driveways and walks. Glad they did because it was heavy, wet heart attack snow for sure.
