Here’s the snow emergency plan

We’ve just received the snow emergency removal plan submitted by DPW Superintendent Michael Schupp.

Be advised – Because this is expected to be a long drawn out storm, a plan of action has been devised by the DPW Management team to effectively plow city streets and deliver other services (sanitation) based on the current forecast and staffing levels. I have included an outline of that plan and it be will be amended as needed.

· A Snow Emergency has been declared and is in effect as of 3:00 pm today (Thursday, January 2, 2014) and will remain in effect for 48 hours unless otherwise posted.


· Parking Enforcement shall commence at 8:00 pm, Thursday, January 2, 2014 in all residential areas of the city. Business districts will be enforced after 10:00 pm, January 2, 2014.

· Vehicles along Snow Emergency Routes should be ticketed and towed after 8:00 pm, January 2, 2014 and KPD will be needed to help enforce parking along those routes.

· Priority routes will be maintained throughout the storm and Snow Emergency Routes will be maintained until about 9:00 pm this evening. A general call out of all DPW personnel will commence at approximately 2:00 am, January 3, 2014. If you need maps of those routes please let me know and we can e-mail them to you.

· Refuse/Recycling pick up will be suspended for Friday, January 3. Regular pick up of the Thursdayrefuse/recycling route will commence Saturday, January 4.

· Christmas tree pick up will be suspended until Monday, January 6, 2014.

· City Parking Lots – access and egress points along w/driving lanes will be plowed. Lots will not be completely plowed until after all streets are properly cleared of snow.

    Clarification: Just spoke to the Mayor’s office. I was informed that it’s not only Snow Emergency Roots, but vehicles parked on any street, except roads designated alternate side of the street parking, are subject to ticketing and towing.
