Public Works crews are ready for potential winter weather. Forecasts called for freezing rain or snow on Thursday night and into the weekend.
Public Works will monitor the weather and conditions as the storms move through our area. If there is snow and ice accumulation, Public Works will execute its ice/snow emergency plan. Crews are on standby through the end of next week. They have up to 14 plows and several sanders and deicers ready to deploy for city streets and bike and pedestrian paths.
As conditions deteriorate, people should expect slick roads and sidewalks. People driving should plan ahead and drive appropriately for the conditions. Road conditions and cameras are available on Tripcheck.com.
If the City declares and Ice/Snow Emergency, people are required to move their cars off of priority streets, as defined by the ice/snow emergency plan. This will allow plow operators room to safely move equipment. Also, property owners are responsible for maintaining their sidewalks and driveway aprons in good repair and safe condition, which includes clearing ice, snow, slippery leaves, and other debris, per City Code.
