What to do During a Snow Emergency

When a snow emergency is declared, the city asks that vehicles be removed from the street to allow the Department of Public Services to provide efficient plowing services.

Police Chief Daniel Grant said the DPS did a great job staying ahead of the weather.

"They've had road crews out working extremely hard. I just came from looking at a lot of the streets and they seem to be looking pretty darn good," Grant said Monday.

The DPS does not plow church and school parking lots because they hold contracts with private vendors. 

Grant said the city's public lots were done early to ensure people had a place to park during the weather emergency. 

"I've seen a lot of the (public) lots and they look to be in pretty good shape, too."  
Once streets have been cleared curb to curb, on-street parking may resume.

Notices of a snow emergency will be sent via the e-newsletter, cable station, Wyandotte radio station AM 1670, City Facebook Page, and First Call Phone Alert System.
