Snow is a fact of life when you live in Fremont, Nebraska. Snow removal is a fact of life for our Street Department. They work tirelessly to get our city cleaned up after snow events. They start preparing days prior to a predicted snow event. Filling trucks with salt, checking over plows, filling up gas tanks, and making sure they are ready to start pushing the white stuff as soon as 2" has accumulated.
Folks often want to know when their street will be plowed and why don't crews go out after every snowfall. Our Snow Removal Policy has the answers to all of those questions. Once snow has accumulated to 2", crews head out to clear the major arterial streets, downtown, and the designated snow routes. If we have accumulation of 4" or greater, then residential streets are added to the list, and when the snow stops falling, crews start cleaning up those streets as well.
What is a snow emergency and when is one declared? A snow emergency is an active response plan when a snow storm severely impacts a city. Fremont declares a snow emergency when snow accumulation reaches 4" or greater. During a declared snow emergency, parking on designated snow routes is strictly prohibited. Snow emergency routes are marked with road signs similar to what is pictured below.
