Snow and Ice Removal

Clean Street Policy:  When winter weather hits Crescent Springs you can count on the Public Works Department’s “Clean Street Policy”.  This policy ensures streets are as safe and clear as possible for those who live, work and travel through the City.  Public Works crews work diligently to first ensure that major thoroughfares, bridges and hills are plowed or salted, followed by residential streets.

Avoid shoveling snow into the street. Shoveling snow from your driveway or a commercial lot into a street that has already been cleared may create safety hazards.  Shoveling snow into a street that has not been cleared could result in snow being pushed back into your driveway or lot by the plow.

When conditions exist that require snow plowing or salting, please move vehicles off the street. This greatly assists crews in their efforts to keep streets safe and clear.

When a snow emergency is declared by the Mayor, it is mandatory that all vehicles be removed from the street (City Ordinance 74.01).  Failing to do so may result in a citation and the vehicle being towed.  Check your local news sources or the City’s social media for snow emergency updates.
