Snow removal will occur on emergency routes and around public safety facilities throughout the winter storm event and comprehensive snow removal efforts will subsequently begin in residential and downtown districts as soon as practical following the snowfall.  Comprehensive snow removal efforts are expected to begin in full force early Wednesday morning; however, strong winds may delay snow removal.  Please stay back and give snow removal equipment plenty of room to work.

The emergency snow routes are as follows:

  1. Eleventh Street south from State Street to Fairview Street;
