City of Mission Snow Operations
Mission Public Works staff works hard each winter to keep our streets clear of snow and ice. When winter weather is imminent, the Department operates two 12-hour snow shifts to provide around-the-clock coverage. There are four snow removal routes throughout the City, two that focus on main thoroughfares, and two that focus on residential streets.

A map of the sidewalks and trails that Public Works clears as part of the City’s snow plan is here.
Help Our Crews
When snow is imminent, moving parked vehicles off the street will expedite snow removal.
Streets are prioritized by terrain, visibility and amount of traffic. For instance, a street with hills and corners will take priority over a street that is flat and straight.
Read Mission City Code pertaining to driving and parking restrictions in weather events.
Thank you for your patience as our crews work the removal plan through the day and night.
Sidewalk Shoveling Ordinance
The Mission City Council passed an ordinance in 2020 (Municipal Code 220.370) requiring all property owners to clear public sidewalks of snow within 48 hours of a snowfall. The ordinance will be enforced after the City has received at least two inches of snow. Dumping snow into the street is prohibited. If you are available to help neighbors with clearing their snow, please sign up as a City volunteer. Contact Neighborhood Services with questions about the ordinance at 913.676.8360.
