Weather forecast wrong so Winter Snow Emergency 6 PM today* We have adjusted when we will be able to remove snow from the neighborhoods as the amount of snow has changed or improved in outlook. Estimates are now 6-8 inches rather than 12-18 inches.
I have officially issued a snow emergency for today, Wednesday, February 2, 2022 at 6 PM. This means you must have your vehicle off city streets. If it is not removed you may face a large fine or removal of your vehicle by a tow truck.
1) All hands on deck** to help DPW out as they plow 365 miles of city streets. GPS will hopefully be up by 6 PM.
2 Priority 1 are the main roads such as 9, 11, 13, Hoover, and Ryan.
3) Second priority will be 1/2 mile roads.
4) Next school bus routes.
5) Followed by neighborhood roads (may begin late Wed evening).
**We will be using any city vehicle that can plow a city street and using drivers who are qualified to plow those types of vehicles.
Note: This is the largest snowfall this year and with the size of Warren it will take some time. Please do not drive unless you absolutely have to! Get your vehicle off the street early rather than after the plows have come by. If you do not have a driveway then make arrangements with a neighbor or at last resort, use your lawn area. We have NO desire to punish you for not taking your vehicle off the street, but try to be a good neighbor and get your vehicle off the street and help others if they can’t do it on their own. If we all work together this will be a safe time period for all.
**All city employees will be called upon to work mandatory overtime! Stay tuned for updates.
*Time changed due to changing weather conditions. It is anticipated that we may begin snow removal late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.
