Snow and Ice Control

Department Page | Snow/Emergency Plan | Winter Safety Tips | Snow Control FAQs and Tips

The Public Works Department is responsible for snow removal on public streets. The department monitors weather forecasts closely to schedule crews in advance of winter weather to ensure the highest possible level of response for safe travel during the event.

The Snow Plan has a scheduled route system. Snow plows are only redirected to assist police and fire emergencies; they are not otherwise pulled off of their established routes. If snow control operations are complete, but you believe your street was missed, contact the Snow Desk at 816-969-1870.

City’s Crews to Test Equipment and Run Snow Routes during Snow Dry-Run on Nov. 1

The City of Lee’s Summit has several new tools to help fight snow and ice. Construction of a new automatic salt brine system and a new salt conveyor system is complete at the City’s Maintenance Facility, 1971 SE  Hamblen Rd., just in time for the 2016-2017 winter weather season. Crews will be testing the equipment, and running snow routes, during a Snow Dry Run from 7 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 1. The purpose of this exercise is for crews to re-familiarize themselves with the equipment and snow routes which are critical to the City’s snow and ice control operations.

The City of Lee’s Summit is preparing for the 2016-2017 winter season with a Snow Week from Sept. 13-16, at the Lee's Summit Municipal Airport. The event provides hands-on training to more than 100 City employees who will participate in snow and ice control operations during the 2016-2017 winter season.
