McCOOK, Nebraska -- The City of McCook is asking for the public's help with snow-removal efforts in anticipation of snow expected Wednesday and Wednesday night.
Citizens are asked to remove their vehicles from the streets, particularly from emergency snow routes marked by green emergency snow route signs.
A list of the routes can be found on the city's website, www.cityofmccook.com by clicking on the following prompts: Departments > Public Works > Streets > Emergency Snow Routes.
With the severity of the storm being forecast, the city may have to plow numerous times.
The city is also asking that residents not deposit snow in the streets as not only can it create a driving hazard, but also cause melting snow to dam up and create flooding issues.
City officials are also reminding residents that sidewalks should be cleared of snow within 24 hours of th ecessation of snow.
Members of the public works department expressed their thanks for cooperation and hope that everyone remains safe during this potentially dangerous storm.
