Update on Pleasant Prairie plowing efforts
Pleasant Prairie Public Works crews are actively working to remove snow from the roadways. Due the extensive amount of snowfall and drifting, snow removal is expected to take between two and three days depending upon the severity of drifting in the area. The Village asks residents to please be patient as crews work their way throughout the Village. Snow removal efforts are first being focused on major arterial roadways and clearing paths for emergency responders to reach people in need. Crews will then begin to work their way through residential areas. In certain areas where the snowfall and drifting was more severe, crews must wait for heavy equipment to be brought in to assist in removal efforts. In addition to Village crews, outside contractors have been called in to assist with snow removal efforts. Again, the Village asks that residents remain patient as crews work to clear roadways. With assistance from Kenosha County, Pleasant Prairie has requested a Declaration of Disaster from the Governor. This may provide additional assistance if granted.
The snow emergency in Pleasant Prairie remains in effect. Parking on Village streets is prohibited during a snow emergency. Vehicles on Village streets during the snow emergency may be ticketed and towed. Village Offices Reopen and Garbage Collection Resumes Thursday, Feb. 3.
Pleasant Prairie Village Hall and RecPlex will reopen for regular business hours on Thursday, Feb. 3. Garbage and recycling collection will also resume on Thursday, Feb. 3 with all regular routes for the week being delayed by one day.
