Preparing for winter weather, Public Works crews switch over the limb chipping and leaf vacuuming trucks for plowing, closely monitor weather reports and stock pile salt. For any questions about snow removal, call the Department of Public Works at (314) 872-2533.
When snow hits, the first priority is to clear arterial roads. By placing the arterial streets on the priority list, emergency vehicles and other motorists will only navigate a few snowy blocks before they reach a plowed road. After the arterial routes have been plowed, crews plow subdivision streets.
