Snow Removal

The city performs snow removal anytime more than 2 inches of snowfall is received, or surface conditions are forecast to remain below freezing for an extended period. In instances where ice or significant snowfall is imminent, crews will pre-treat streets with a salt / sand mix with interval plowing.

First Priority

First priority is always given to major streets, schools and emergency response facilities. Snow removal on K-68 is the responsibility of the Kansas Department of Transportation, while Metcalf remains the responsibility of Miami County. Sidewalk clearing is the responsibility of each private property owner and is especially appreciated along school walking routes.

Please note: Unfortunately city crews will not be able to clear residential cul-de-sacs if vehicles are parked within the required turning radius.
