SPOKANE, Wash. - While Spokane didn't see much snow fall Christmas evening into Monday, the looming forecast was enough for the city to implement it's all-hands-on-deck snow removal plan.
The aggressive plan calls for the following:
- 4 consecutive days of 24-hour plowing until every street is plowed
- Full use of the city's fleet as well independent contractors
- The clearing of every walkway leading to and/or around city buildings
In return, the city asks for the cooperation of its citizens. They remind people to;
- Avoid parking downtown overnight
- When parking on residential streets, park on the even side of the road
- Clear their cars, sidewalks and mailboxes of as much snow as possible.
Generally, the Stage 2 plan is not implemented until there are at least 6 inches of snow. In this case, the city is trying to apply to the solution before the problem gets out of hand.
