The City of Spring Hill is asking residents to take precautions to keep themselves safe and help our crews efficiently deliver services during this weekend's icy weather.
The Public Works Department will be busy this weekend spreading salt and, if necessary, removing storm debris from the streets. Below are a few tips to help our salt truck drivers clear your road more quickly:
- Stay off the roads, if possible. The fewer vehicles on the road, the faster we can get them cleared.
- Do not park on the Emergency Snow Route, the primary city side streets, or in alleys.
- Do not park within a cul-de-sac. Due to the size of the snow plow trucks, City crews are unable to safely remove snow from cul-de-sacs where vehicles are parked within the circle. One parked vehicle within a cul-de-sac will prevent that area from being plowed and must be removed before the plow truck can return to the area.
- Park your vehicle in your driveway and do not allow it to hang into the street.
- Driveways may be blocked during the snow removal process. Avoid placing snow from your driveway back into the street. Less snow will be pushed into your driveway by the snow plow.
- Remove portable basketball goals or other structures from the street in order to avoid damage to the truck or portable structures.
- Stay at least 50 feet from the rear of a plow truck so the driver can see you. If you can't see the driver in his mirrors, he can't see you.
- To report a missed street, call the Public Works Office at (913) 592-3317.
Warming Center and Power Outages
Power outages are a possibility with this weekend's inclement weather. If part of the city loses power, the Reception Room at the Spring Hill Civic Center will open as a warming center. If you choose to utilize this resource, please abide by the rules posted on-site.
Residents will be notified of the warming center's opening through the Spring Hill Notification System. You can register for this convenience service here.
Our electrical service providers, KCP&L and Westar, have provided some helpful tips on how to prepare for and report outages.
