[ARCHIVED] SNOW EMERGENCY in Effect Beginning 01/18/2023

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Platte County from 6:00 a.m. Wednesday until 6:00 a.m. Thursday. Forecasted snowfall is expected to reach 6 to 15 inches, with winds gusting as high as 25-35 mph.

For public safety and more efficient snow removal, the City of Columbus has declared a SNOW EMERGENCY effective Wednesday, January 18, beginning at 12:00 noon until further notice.

No parking is allowed at all on cul-de-sacs and emergency snow routes.  On all residential streets, it is strongly encouraged that citizens park off of the street if possible.  This allows for more efficient snow removal by City Crews.  A list of the emergency snow routes and an interactive map of these routes can be found on our City of Columbus website at:  

In a SNOW EMERGENCY, citations will be issued or vehicles will be towed if parked along any listed or posted Emergency Snow Routes.  In addition, during the Snow Emergency, any abandoned or stuck vehicles can be cited or towed.

The City urges no unnecessary travel on city streets as we anticipate dangerous road conditions.  Thank you for your cooperation.
