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.
