After approximately six to eight inches of snow blanketed Lee’s Summit on Saturday (March 23) night into Sunday (March 24) morning, City of Lee’s Summit crews are plowing and treating primary, secondary and residential roadways throughout the community.
The majority of the heavy, wet snow fell in Lee’s Summit between 4 to 7 a.m. Sunday. Blowing and drifting snow caused by windy conditions has made it necessary for crews to plow streets again.
Those venturing outside today are urged to continue to use caution when driving and walking on pavements. As plows remove snow from the roadways, driveways will become blocked. The City will not return to neighborhoods to clear driveways. Residents are also asked to:
Remove vehicles from streets 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 your property 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.
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.
