Snow Removal Reminders for Wyoming Residents

by City of Wyoming Public Works Department

Wyoming SealThe City of Wyoming takes great pride in its winter snowplowing service and has some of the best operators in west Michigan. In order to efficiently accomplish our snowplowing, the City is divided into five snowplowing districts with first, second and third priority streets.

First Priority

Bare pavement streets that carry most of the traffic (over 10,000 cars per day).

Second Priority

Collector streets, streets in an area/neighborhood that carry the majority of that area’s traffic, and selected bus routes that enable most residents to be within one block of a well plowed street.

Third Priorityci wyoming snow plows

The remaining residential streets and cul-de-sacs.

The goal of the snowplowing operation is to have all streets plowed within 24 hours after the   end of a storm.

Snow Plowing Information

The plowing operation begins at the start of a snowstorm and continues 24 hours until all plowing has been completed. The success of the snowplowing operation depends in a large part on the cooperation of the residents adhering to the Odd/Even Parking limitations and NOT plowing driveway snow back into the street.

For more information on our snowplowing policies, visit the links on this page or contact the City of Wyoming Public Works department at (616) 530-7260 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. or contact us via email.

Odd/Even Parking

In many areas of the City residents utilize on-street parking. During the winter months parking on both sides of the street can restrict the width of the street to a point where emergency vehicles are unable to have access. In order to provide better access, the City implements Odd/Even Parking restrictions from December 1 until March 31.  See the Odd/Even Parking ordinance for specific information.

From December 1 through the end of March of each year and during any declared snow emergency, any motor vehicles and other licensed trailers or equipment shall be parked only on that side of the street having even numbers on even numbered calendar days and on that side of the street having odd numbers on the odd numbered calendar days between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 7:00 pm of the same day with the following exceptions:

* When a residence is on a cul-de-sac, on-street parking shall only be on the even numbered calendar days.

* When a residence is on a street already posted “No Parking”, the no parking restrictions shall apply.
