RESOLUTION NO. 100032

 

Directing the City Manager to establish a comprehensive snow removal plan.

 

WHEREAS, the City’s current snow removal plan has worked well in recent years for normal snowfall events in Kansas City; and

 

WHEREAS, the large snowfall events over the past two weeks, with accompanying frigid temperatures and high winds, provided the worst snow removal conditions in over twenty years, and snow removal was significantly hampered as a result of these severe weather conditions; and

 

WHEREAS, these recent snowfall events have underscored the need for a three phase snow removal plan, which would allow the City to quickly adapt to uncommon or unpredictable snowfall accumulations, frigid temperatures, high winds, and other weather-related conditions that can dramatically impact the City’s ability to remove snow from our streets; and

 

WHEREAS, this three phase approach would assist the City in effectively communicating to the public the anticipated level of service for snow removal, depending upon the particular snow event; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the City Manager is hereby directed to establish a comprehensive three phase snow removal plan that adapts to various snow conditions and accumulations, and report back to the Council with a proposed plan within 20 days of passage of this resolution.

 

Section 2. That the City Manager is further directed to expand the City’s current focus of snow removal on primary and arterial streets to include residential streets and to coordinate this effort with our local school districts.
