Important Snow Removal Information For Lee's Summit

Important Snow Removal Information For Lee's Summit

February 25, 2013

The City’s goal is to provide safe travel along our streets for residents. With another significant snowfall expected for our area tonight on top of last week’s snowfall, the City’s snow removal crews would like to remind residents that it is unavoidable to plow snow near and across the entrance of driveways.

Residents are asked to stock up on needed supplies today (Feb. 25) in preparation for staying indoors on Tuesday, Feb 26, unless it is absolutely necessary to go out. 

In addition, residents are asked to:

•    Remove vehicles from streets before the start of the winter event to prevent a delay and to improve the snow removal process. Snow plow operators cannot pick up the blade in front of driveways or comeback to plow a street once vehicles are moved from streets.

•    Remove trash cans from the street after pick-up has occurred. DO NOT place trash bags and cans beyond the curb line.

•    Do not allow children to play in snow piles along the street. Snow plow operators cannot see children on, or inside of a tunneled snow pile. 

•    Ensure snow is not blocking furnace exhaust vents on the roof or the side of the house.

•    Remove snow from around fire hydrants near your property.

Snow removal crews started pre-treating roads this morning (Feb. 25), and will begin plowing all roads (primary, secondary and residential) as soon as measurable snowfall arrives. During the storm, priority is given to keeping a passable lane on all primary routes. Once the snow has stopped, crews will work toward having two cleared lanes on all streets within 48 hours. 

You may call the Snow Desk at (816) 969-1870. Normal business hours are 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. During winter storm events, the Snow Desk operates 24 hours a day.

    My roads r still not plowed I've already lost two days of work. Tomorrow if my roads r not plowed then I would like to know where I should send my bill for 23 hours of missed work at$11.33 an hour. I'm a manager at Petco in lees summit. I live less then 3 miles away and I can't get out of my driveway. This is absolutely unexceptable. I'm leaving my house at 7.30 am wend. Morning my roads should be finished . If not I will talk to an attorney.
