[ARCHIVED] Snow Removal Information

Snow & Ice Control

Each winter season the City of East Wenatchee continues to make every effort to assist vehicular and pedestrian traffic during inclement weather. It is our intention to meet the needs of our residents and travelers by providing the safest possible street conditions during snow storm events. If the snow or ice is ever so hard that it cannot be removed without injury to the pavement/concrete or person, spread sand or de-icer to make it safe for pedestrians.

Snow Plowing

Streets that serve as main arteries are our first priority and streets feeding the main arteries are second priority. Please avoid unnecessary driving during snow plowing operations. Packed snow, parked, stalled, or stuck vehicles make it more difficult to maneuver equipment and remove snow.

Sidewalks & Driveways

Property owners are to clear the full width of their sidewalks within twenty-four hours after the snow or ice ceases to fall. When clearing your sidewalks and driveways, please throw snow into your yard or landscaped areas, as it is illegal to throw snow from your sidewalk or driveway into the street. When removing snow, please do so in a way that does not create a hazard or obstruction in the roadway.  If there is a fire hydrant located on your property, please remove the snow around it, this will assist the Fire Department, in case of an emergency. If you have a stormwater drain close to your property, please help us by clearing the snow off of it. This will help the melting snow have a place to drain.
