Snowplowing Update for 2-23-18 - 6:45 a.m.
Coon Rapids snowplow crews have been out plowing main City streets since 4 a.m. and began entering residential areas around 6:30 a.m. Our crews will be doing a full plowing of the city today which will take several hours to complete – please help us by making sure all cars are out of the roadways and all garbage and recycling cans are out of the street. Plowing of City sidewalks is also taking place today.
Coon Rapids received just over 3 inches of snow with this storm and more snow is expected tomorrow.
Winter parking reminder: Winter parking restrictions are in effect until April 1. This means vehicles cannot be parked on the street anytime between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. each night. Parking is also prohibited on public streets anytime there is an accumulation of three inches of snow, or until the street has been plowed from curb-to-curb. Once the snowplow has gone by, and the street has been thoroughly cleaned from curb-to-curb, parking can resume.
Garbage and recycling can rules: Remember when it is your garbage day, please help our snowplow drivers by putting your garbage and recycling carts behind the curb and not in the street. This is required by City Code and it helps to keep the streets free of obstructions so the plow can go by and clean thoroughly.
Please help our snowplow drivers by keeping other obstructions out of the roadway as well including basketball hoops, hockey nets and other items.
Thanks for your help as our snowplow drivers truly appreciate it!
