NORFOLK, Neb. -- The City of Norfolk put out a press release stating their snow removal plans for the year.

Presented at Monday's council meeting, the City of Norfolk has released its plans to remove snow this year. 

When weather permits, the streets of Norfolk will be cleaned by 23 street and fleet personnel. The city has 13 plow trucks, four loaders, six truck salters, and four truck set up with brine at their disposal.

Norfolk will have over 75 miles of road considered emergency routes, which will be plowed first in the event of a snow emergency, followed by the remaining 520 miles of streets and alleyways.

According to the release, a snow emergency will be declared by the city when a lot of snow is accumulating or has been forecast. The snow emergency will then be announced on local media and posted to the city’s social media accounts.

In the event of a snow emergency, residents need to then park their vehicles on the even-numbered side of the street so that more of the street can be cleared.

When large amounts of snowfall is expected, snow plows will operate in two shifts called "A shift" and "B shift." The "A shift" will operate from 2 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. while the "B shift" will operate from 3:30 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Residents can call Norfolk's Snow Number at 402-844-2299 to know when a snow emergency is in effect or not.

Residents can also sign up for Norfolk Emergency Text Alerts here or by texting norfolkalerts to the number 74121.
