winter weather events when snow accumulates on the streets, the City will make
every effort to ensure snow is removed in a safe and timely manner.
Street Snow Removal
snow accumulation is apparent, the Marceline Street Department begins plowing
the primary arterial roads, followed by the secondary and side streets. MoDOT
is responsible for snow removal on JJ, WW, and 5. Plowing along streets may
result in snow deposits on the roadside and driveway entrances, so unless it is
necessary, residents are encouraged to wait until the snowplow comes through
their road before shoveling the end of the driveway. The City does not have the
resources to clear snow from individual driveway entrances. Residents are
encouraged to be mindful when parking on Main Street USA and residential streets
when heavy snowfall is expected. When heavier snowfall requires the removal of
vehicles on public roads and streets, residential notifications will be
published in advance as required.
Sidewalk Snow Removal
Property owners (business / residential) and tenants are responsible for timely
snow removal on sidewalks in front of their businesses and residences to ensure
pedestrian safety and minimize liability.
