Storm Update: Dealing With the Snow, Cold

Updated: 7 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 27.

A few notes as we prepare for another winter storm and some of the worst cold we’ve seen in years …

  • Salters went out around midnight, and we switched to plowing around 1:30 a.m.
  • As for plowing, please be patient as we do our best to keep up with the snow. We have more than a dozen pieces of equipment that may be used at any one time, clearing our streets, alleys and sidewalks.
  • City offices will generally be open. Monday garbage pickup is cancelled; it will be be collected on Friday. Other city services may be impacted. Check out our Facebook page for regular updates.
  • The Grobschmidt Senior Center is also closed on Monday.
  • South Milwaukee public school students were already scheduled to be off on Monday, with the end of a quarter. Activities and sports are also now cancelled, and staff does not have to report, according to the school district Facebook page. The fitness center is also closed.
  • Divine Mercy and Zion Lutheran Schools are also closed. So is Knights of Columbus, according to WISN.
  • Here is information on our local ordinances around snow removal. The basic rule: You have 24 hours to shovel from the end of a storm.
  • Don’t forget to shovel out those hydrants, even if it’s not in front of your house. It could save your life, or property.
  • And check out some cold-weather tips below …

    You need to get people that have corner lots to shovel out the corner so people can get through.

    I think the mayor and Alderman should shovel out all the fire hydrants in their district / city . Maybe their wives/ Children can help them !!
