City Snow Crews Treating Primary and Secondary Streets
December 13, 2013
The City of Lee’s Summit's snow removal crews are currently treating primary and secondary streets and will continue to do so throughout today, Friday, Dec. 13.
According to forecasts, there is a chance for snow and sleet before 10 p.m. today (Dec. 13) with accumulations of 1 – 3 inches possible. The City will pre-treat all primary, secondary and residential streets today (Dec. 13) in anticipation of the forecasted snow and will continue snow removal operations until all City-owned streets are plowed and treated.
Residents are asked to take care when walking on pavements and to remember to do the following:
Remove vehicles from streets.
Shovel snow to the side of your driveway to lessen the amount of snow left at your driveway entrance.
Clear snow from around fire hydrants so they can be easily located during emergencies.
Do not make snow tunnels on or near streets or driveways. Snow plows and other drivers may not see the snow tunnels and could accidently injure someone playing inside of them.
As with all winter weather events, the City’s snow removal crews will continue to monitor the weather and update their response as needed.
The City’s Snow Desk at (816) 969-1870 has normal business hours from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. However, during winter storm events, the desk will operate for an extended period of time.
