Plowing operations continue 2/12/2019

Snow clearing operations continue today (Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019). City street crews will plow residential areas this morning, and continue to monitor street conditions and weather forecasts.

How you can help winter road crews
· Park vehicles in driveways or parking areas off the main streets
· If you don’t have a regular off-street parking area, consider moving your car when there are 4 inches of snow, and snow continues to fall.
· Maintain snow removal of your sidewalks, and driveways. People who push snow from a parking lot onto public rights-of-way may be fined $250 plus the cost of snow removal.

The City of Ellensburg provides winter care for our roads. The city is divided into six plowing sections, and there are three priority levels that guide crew’s work. First priority goes to primary arterials and streets which buses use to reach public schools. Second priority is secondary arterials and the downtown core area. All remaining streets are third priority. Under normal snowfall conditions, all roads within the city are plowed using the aforementioned priority basis.
