FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The City of Watertown has received more than 2” of snow. Therefore, the Street Department is currently (Monday, January 24th, 2022) plowing & sanding Highways, Emergency Snow Routes, Willow Creek Drive, South Bypass, & Lake Kampeska and will continue into Streets.
Starting at 3 AM, Tuesday, January 25th, 2022, the Street Department will be removing snow from the Downtown Business District and will continue into Avenues.
Downtown Business Owners: Please assist the Street Department by cleaning off your curbside sidewalks before 3 AM, January 25th, 2022.
If additional accumulation/blowing occurs and the Street Superintendent deems it necessary, the Street Department may alter this plan to re-plow & re-sand high priority roadways such as Highways & Emergency Snow Routes.
We'd like to remind residents of the ticketing process for snow removal. Therefore, the information is listed below:
Streets are plowed on: Monday, Wednesday, & Friday
Avenues are plowed on: Tuesday, Thursday, & Saturday
Please assist the Street Department by not parking on the roadways during the time that roadway is scheduled to be plowed. Parking on streets, avenues, or snow routes during the days they are scheduled to be plowed will result in a $40 fine (fine doubles to $80 if not paid in 3 days). There is also a fine for blowing snow into the street from a driveway or sidewalk.
Officers will do same day ticketing of vehicles blocking the snowplows from clearing the City’s streets and avenues. If the obstructing vehicles remain on the street longer than 24 hours after being plowed around, it will be towed at the expense of the owner. The Street & Police Departments appreciate the cooperation and understanding of residents in removing cars to provide for effective snow removal on City streets.
