IMPORTANT SNOW REMOVAL INFORMATION
FROM LEE'S SUMMIT FIRE DEPARTMENT

The City’s goal is to provide safe travel along our streets for residents. With the large amounts of snow fall we have gotten over the last week, 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 before the snow storms in preparation for staying indoors, 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.

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 City of Lee's Summit 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.
