Snow and Ice Operations

During extreme winter weather events, snow crews are dispatched to maintain safe driving routes for all citizens and travelers within the City of Saint Charles. Roads are given priorities based on their volume of travel. Crews will start with arterial roadways and work down to residential roads and subdivisions, until all roads are passable.

As a joint effort, residents can assist the City by:

  • Keeping parked cars off of all roadways, especially courts and cul-de-sacs.
  • Not approaching snow plows or interfering with snow removal
  • Pile snow to the right-side of the driveway to reduce the potential of having it re-deposited at the driveway opening when plows pass
  • Being patient. There are over 545 lane miles of roadways that the City is responsible for clearing. All streets will be cleared and all concerns will be responded to as quickly as possible.
