Private Street Snow Removal Note

There are several private streets that the City does not plow.  Some have maintenance issues that are keeping them from being on our list for snow removal service. Two people on each of these streets have been notified by mail that their street is currently not on the snow removal route for this year. Those letters gave the specific reasons as to why they would not be serviced. It gave the contact information of Street Superintendent Jeff Rodenberg to call for re-inspection.  Only after successful re-inspection of the street, can it be placed back on the route for snow removal service.  Private streets that will not be serviced because of maintenance issues are marked with a red asterisk (*)
 in the list below.

Update Information for Snow Days

If you would like a direct link to the latest snow removal weather information, you can go to National Weather Service where they have the forecast and a link to weather radar for St. Louis. They have the latest weather information in the form of a radar loop.

We also now have the capability to pre-treat when we know snow is coming.  This is proving to be an effective means to keep frozen liquid from sticking to the surface once removal operations start.
