While many dedicated City of Wyoming employees used their snow blowers and shovels to clear a way into work yesterday morning, one City employee took a slightly more unconventional path. Bob Bailey, Inspections Department, snow shoed the 1.8 miles to his desk.

From the photos taken upon his arrival it seems he enjoyed the blustery trek.

Snow Emergency Update - Plowing Status

From: http://www.ci.wyoming.mi.us

Wyoming, like all other communities, plows the streets with the greatest traffic volumes first. The major streets (multi-lane streets) have been plowed at least once and are passable. The second priority streets (residential collectors) are being plowed this morning, but only with one lane in each direction. By this afternoon, the snow will hopefully come to an end and the process of clearing all of the streets will begin. This normally is accomplished within 24 hours, which means that all of the streets should be plowed by sometime Thursday afternoon. Additional snowfall or interruptions from water or sewer issues could extend the plowing schedule.

Winter Weather Message from Wyoming City Manager

In anticipation of the weather that is being predicted for Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, I wanted to let you know that City Departments are preparing to deal with this upcoming weather event. I also want to share a few winter weather reminders with you. 

Given the predictions provided by local and national weather outlets, it is likely that we will see varying but significant snow accumulations throughout the area.  When combined with high wind and drifting, road conditions will get messy.  The bulk of the snow is being predicted for early Wednesday morning, between 3 a.m. and 9 a.m.  During this period, crews will do their best to keep major streets passable, as well as key second priority streets.  Once the snow stops, crews will be able to shift focus to begin clean up of the entire City; beginning with the major streets and then with the second and third priority streets.

City of Wyoming Snow Emergency Information

With the potential for severe winter weather, the City of Wyoming is requesting all vehicle operators to abide by the Winter ODD/EVEN Parking ordinance.  Abiding by the ODD/EVEN Parking ordinance will allow the City of Wyoming to remove the snow from the street right of way as quickly as possible.  All operators, of motor vehicles, trailers, or equipment parked in the street shall be parked only on that side of the street having even numbers on even numbered calendar days and on that side of the street having odd numbers on odd numbered calendar days between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 7:00 p.m.
