The Mayor of Wentzville has declared a Snow Emergency in accordance with City Municipal Code 395.020. This Snow Emergency is in effect today, Jan. 14 beginning at 10 p.m. through Sunday, Jan. 16 at 10 a.m.

During this time, it is unlawful for vehicles to park on a City public roadway. Vehicles in violation may be ticketed or towed.

Snow-Removal Tips

With snow and ice season upon us, Wentzville Public Works is gearing up to keep City roads clear and safe. To submit a snow concern, please email snowconcern@wentzvillemo.gov. Below are a few tips from the Public Works Department. Have a question? Call Public Works at (636) 327-5102.

  • Fire Hydrants: Residents should clear fire hydrants of snow buildup to ensure firefighters can quickly find the fire hydrant in the event of a fire.
  • Observe Winter Parking Restrictions: It is always a good idea to remove parked cars from the roadway during a snow event greater than two inches. Parking is prohibited on City streets when a snowfall forecast of five or more inches results in a declaration of a City Snow Emergency.
  • Mailboxes: Occasionally, mailboxes are bumped by snow removal equipment or snow dropping off of the face of the plow. When notified of the problem, the City will erect a temporary mailbox until weather conditions allow for repairs. If replacement is needed, the City will reimburse $50 for a new mailbox, which meets the minimum requirements of the USPS. If a mailbox is overhanging into the street it may not be eligible for reimbursement.
  • Landscaping: The City permits low bushes, ground cover and flowers to be planted in the right-of-way, but does not compensate residents for private plantings in the right-of-way that are damaged due to snow-removal operations. If sod is damaged, the City will restore that area at the earliest availability of sod material.
  • Mail Delivery/Trash Pickup: Snow fighters clear snow as close to the curb line as practical to provide access to the mailboxes and trash collection. Final clearing is the responsibility of each resident in order to receive trash collection service and delivery of mail by the USPS.
