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 crews began treating streets with salt in the early morning hours of Tuesday, Feb. 20, and will continue throughout the day, as a wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet and ice are all possible. However, heavy rain will limit the effectiveness of salt and streets can remain slick.

Roadways may be slick Tuesday and residents are reminded to use caution at intersections and on elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses. The City will continue to monitor the weather forecast and update its response accordingly.

Residents are encouraged to stay up-to-date on weather information by listening to local newscasts.
