Ticker–Washburn, Wi has declared a snow emergency for Wednesday night

A Snow Emergency has been declared for the City of Washburn starting at 9 PM Wednesday, February 22, 2023 and ending at 6:00 PM Thursday, February 23, 2023. A snow emergency means that all vehicles must be removed from all city streets, alleys, and parking lots. This will allow city streets to be cleared completely and without obstruction. Failure to comply may result in a citation.

Please know that the Police Department will continue enforcing alternate side parking after the snow emergency expires.

With 14 inches of snow forecast, and the possibility of up to 20 inches drifting, city crews need to perform their work to clear city streets and alleyways not only for public but emergency vehicles if necessary.

Plow drivers have been instructed to clear streets and alleyways full width starting tonight and will need to do a second round when the storm subsides. The priority tonight will be key facilities and emergency routes, but the entire City may be plowed. Please move your refuse containers away from the streets and alleys as soon as possible!
