City Of Spokane Ready For Snow

The City of Spokane wants you to know they're ready for the snow, according to a news release just sent out. With significant amounts of snow forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, Street Department crews are preparing and plan to stay late and come in early to provide 24-hour snow removal work.

Before the snow arrives, crews will spread de-icer on hills and at intersections, then switch to plowing as soon as there is enough snow on the streets.

Keep in mind, removing snow from sidewalks within 24 hours of a snow storm is critical. The City takes an 'enhanced' approach to sidewalk snow removal and can issue tickets for those who don't shovel, although to date they have asked for voluntary compliance.
