Snow and Ice Policy

Harrisonville has within its boundaries roadways maintained by the City, MODOT, and Cass County Public Works. The City of Harrisonville has the responsibility of clearing and treating 66 miles of roadway, public parking lots, and airport facilities during winter storm events.  To facilitate clearing of roadways the Street Department asks that residents please park vehicles off the streets for 12 hours following storm events as to allow equipment to quickly clear roadways. To report unplowed streets, please call the Street Department at 816-380-8951. If an emergency after hours please contact the Harrisonville Police Department, 816-380-8940.  Routes maintained by the City of Harrisonville are separated into three basic levels of service in the event of snow and ice.


Level 1
Emergency Snow Routes are the first streets treated or plowed in an event by Street Department crews dispatched by Public Safety personnel, Public Works Director or his representative.  These routes will be maintained throughout storm events as needed to remove excessive snow accumulation and will be plowed curb to curb within 12 hours after snow has ended.  Emergency Snow Routes are listed on the City of Harrisonville web page http://ci.harrisonville.mo.us/index.aspx?nid=245. Parking is prohibited on these streets when snow accumulation measures 2 inches or more or ice is present until the snow or ice has been cleared as to permit the movement of emergency vehicles.

Level 2

Roadways with schools or business districts located on them as to allow persons to get to and from these locations as well as residential streets used as collector routes into and out of subdivisions.  These routes will be plowed and treated with deicing  chemicals or sand as needed and will receive no less than two passes with a snowplow within 12 hours following end of snow fall.  Streets will be plowed wider as appropriate or if conditions require more storage space for additional snowfall or safety concerns.


Level 3
Consists of residential roadways, NO THRU streets, parking lots, and travelled alley ways.  These routes will be plowed within 24 hours after snowfall has ended.  The roadway will be plowed to two passes or as required and treated with deicing chemicals or sand as needed on hills and intersections.  Snow on the town square will be piled to be hauled away as time allows.
