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 preparing for the potential of snow beginning late Saturday, Jan. 13, and overnight into Sunday, Jan. 14. There's also a potential for more snow on Monday, Jan. 15. Crews are scheduled around the clock from tonight, Saturday, Jan. 13, through early morning on Tuesday, Jan. 16. The City will continue to monitor the forecast and update its response accordingly. 
City crews are scheduled to treat roadways before, during and after a winter storm scheduled to move through the area beginning Thursday, Jan. 11. The storm is expected to begin as rain, and as a cold front moves through the area and temperatures drop rapidly, rain-saturated roadways are expected to freeze. Slick conditions can be expected for the morning commute, and freezing rain, sleet and snow are all possible throughout the morning. While low ice/snow totals are expected, low temperatures will limit the effectiveness of de-icing materials.
City crews are scheduled to begin treating streets with salt in the early morning hours of Sunday, Jan. 7, and will continue throughout the day, as a wintry mix of freezing drizzle, freezing rain, sleet, ice and snow are all possible. Rain is expected later in the day, but may refreeze overnight Sunday into Monday, Jan. 8.
City crews will shut down operations at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 26, and will be back out treating streets at 4 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 27.

City crews are treating streets with salt today, Tuesday, Dec. 26, and will continue overnight into Wednesday, Dec. 27, as needed. 

While total snowfall is expected to be low, cold temperatures limit the effectiveness of salt and roadways will remain slick. Drivers should use caution.
