Snow Plowing on Dennings Avenue

Since I moved to Beacon in 1999, I've always wondered who plows snow on Dennings Avenue (the dirt road that leads from the recycling/sewage facility parking lot to Dennings Point.)  There is only one house near the end of the road, and the "Beacon Institute" building is the only other building.  If Dennings Avenue is not a city of Beacon Road (since it is not paved, it would seem not to be), then who is responsible for plowing it?  I hope someone here can answer this question.  Thanks.
