Spokane’s City Council will consider a resolution at its meeting next Monday, March 13, to establish a process to make improvements to the City’s Snow Plan and other responses to winter weather events.

According to a City news release, the resolution, sponsored by Council member Amber Waldref, proposes engaging stakeholders to strengthen the City’s preparedness and response efforts and to identify the appropriate level of service for ice and snow removal. It calls for the City Council and City Administration, including the Street Department, Code Enforcement and Parking Enforcement, to work jointly over the next several months to identify possible changes to the City’s approach to winter weather events, such as reducing city-wide plowing times; improving snow removal services in high density areas like downtown; improving communication about on-street vehicle storage during plowing; and identifying better strategies to keep sidewalks and driveway approaches clear.
