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 are out plowing and treating streets today, Sunday, Feb. 4, and will continue overnight into Monday, Feb. 5, as needed. 

Streets were pre-treated earlier in the week with a brine solution, and will be treated with rock salt today; however, low temperatures will limit the effectiveness of salt and streets will remain slick.

City crews will be out treating streets with rock salt tonight, Monday, Jan. 22, and overnight into Tuesday, Jan. 23. Snow began falling Monday afternoon, and melted when it hit streets due to warmer temperatures. As pavement temperatures continue to drop overnight, wet roadways may refreeze and/or become slushy creating potentially slick conditions.
