WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY, JANUARY23-24
To make snow removal easier and safer for our drivers:
PLEASE DON'T PARK ON SNOW ROUTES-- DRIVE SLOWLY FOR EVERYONE'S SAFETY--MOVE OVER FOR PLOWS
1/24 9:37AM: Snow routes are plowed and salted. Some spots are still slushy, so take it slow. Crews moved into the neighborhoods this morning with the plows and will continue plowing until they're finished. As temperatures rise conditions should improve.
1/23 3:00PM: Snow is expected to fall later this evening. Public Works crews have been working around the clock since Wednesday. Overnight crews will monitor street conditions and treat accordingly.
As always, please note, their focus will be snow routes only until the winter weather ends. The most important thing to remember when you're driving is to drive slowly. Any updates will be posted on our social media channels and on this page.
The Public Works Department is responsible for snow removal on all public streets within the City. For questions or concerns, please call the Public Works Director at (816) 316-4855 during regular business hours. In order to help improve snow removal operations, park off the streets if possible, have proper snow or all-weather tires on your vehicle, and wait to clear snow from driveways until the street has been plowed. If not possible, shovel all snow from your driveway to the right side as you are facing the street. This will lessen the amount of snow at the mouth of the drive when the snowplow comes down the street.
The City does not treat or plow private property or private streets, and does not remove snow deposited in drive approaches by street plowing. Snow removal on parking lots and sidewalks are the responsibility of the resident or property owner. The City's streets are plowed and/or sanded in the following order:
- Priority Streets (Continuous until adverse weather conditions cease and they are cleared.)
- Secondary Streets (Beginning after cease of adverse weather conditions and Priority Streets are safe.)
