Snow Removal


See the Forest City Snow Ordinances here. ,chapter s69.13 and 69.14. 


The following policies and procedures of this Manual will provide a guide in planning for common sense, effective snow and ice removal for the City of Forest City, Iowa. Our goal is to provide the best snow removal and ice control possible under emergency conditions to the best of our ability. By preparing this Manual and planning for a “Snow Emergency”, we will provide effective snow and ice control for the citizens of Forest City.

Several departments assist the Street Department in these efforts to remove snow and ice. The Police Departments’ advisories to street conditions are very important. Manpower from the Sanitation and Line Departments are utilized in the operating of the trucks and loader; the Parks Department assists in cleaning sidewalks. Without planning and cooperation, our efforts would be greatly hindered.



NOTE: This Manual is subject to change at any time with the recommendation of the Street Superintendent and approval by the Mayor/Council.
