The second major winter storm in less than a week is set to hit the metro Monday afternoon.  If predictions are correct, it could be more significant than the recent storm that left nearly a foot of snow throughout the city.  In preparation for significant accumulation, we can all work together to keep the community safe.

Here’s how you can help:

Snow Removal Operations Shift to Residential Areas

Crews continue 24/7 snow operations and have moved all units into residential areas.  Crews are making an initial pass through all residential areas and will return to plow as close to curb-to-curb as possible.

Residents are asked to move vehicles off streets and into driveways when possible.   Clearing efforts can be hampered by cars parked along streets because they decrease the width a plow needs to safely maneuver.

Abandoned vehicles can be reported to the non-emergency police number 782-0720.
