The City of Marshall believes it is in the best interest of the residents
for the City to provide control of snow and ice on City streets. Reasonable
ice and snow control is necessary for routine travel and emergency services.
The City will provide such control in a safe and cost effective manner,
within the limits of budget, personnel, and environmental concerns. The
City will use their employees and equipment.
When will the City start snow or ice control operations?
The Street Department Foreman and Municipal Services Director will decide when
to begin snow or ice control operations, as these operations are expensive and
involve the use of limited personnel and equipment.
The general criteria is:
- Snow accumulation of 2 inches or more.
- Drifting of snow that causes problems for travel.
- Icy conditions which seriously affect travel.
- Time of snowfall in relationship to heavy traffic times.
How snow will be plowed?
Snow will be plowed in a manner so as to minimize any traffic obstructions.
The center of the roadway will be plowed first. The discharge shall go
onto the parkway of the street along the curb. In times of extreme
snowfall, streets will not always immediately be able to be completely
cleared of snow. Designated Emergency Snow Routes will be plowed first.
Priorities and schedule for which streets will be plowed
City has classified streets based on the street function, traffic
volume, and importance to the welfare of the community. Those streets
classified as “Emergency Snow Routes” will be plowed first.
These are high volume routes, which connect major sections of the City
and provide access for emergency services (fire, police, and medical
services) and schools.
The Secondary Streets are those streets providing access to commercial
businesses and connecting between emergency snow routes. The third priority
streets are low volume residential streets. Plowing of the Square and
adjoining streets in the area and City Parking Lots will be done at night
as to have the least impact on area businesses and the limited parking
around the Square.
Snow hauling from the Square Area
The Street Department
Foreman will determine when snow will be hauled away from the Square area
by truck. Such snow hauling is necessary because there is no room on the
square for snow storage. Snow hauling operations
generally will not commence until other snowplowing of primary and secondary
routes are complete. Snow hauling operations may also be delayed depending
on weather conditions and personnel constraints. The snow will be hauled
to a snow storage area. The snow storage area will be located so as to
minimize environmental impact.
Street Parking During a Snow
During a snow please find a place off the street to
park your vehicle. This will help increase the efficiency in the snow
plowing process as the equipment has to slow down to plow around parked
Snow and ice control operations will be conducted only when weather conditions
do not endanger the safety of operators and equipment. Factors that may
delay snow and ice control operations include: severe cold, significant
winds, and limited visibility.
Use of sand, salt, and other chemicals
The City will
use sand, salt, and other chemicals when there are hazardous ice or slippery
conditions. The City is concerned about the effect
of such chemicals on the environment and will limit its use for that
Each occupant/property owner is responsible for snow removal and ice control of
sidewalks located on their property.
The Street Department Foreman, under the direction
of the Municipal Services Director, shall be responsible for the City’s
snow removal and will use his best judgement in directing snow and ice
control operations. The decisions will be based on the best interest of
the City with due regard for the safety of the operators, traveling public,
capabilities of the equipment, and budget constraints.

Marshall has two waterways that manage our community runoff: Salt
Fork Creek and the North Fork of Finney Creek. The runoff in our
community eventually drains into the Missouri River, the 15th longest
river in the United States. The Missouri River watershed drains one-sixth
of the water in United States.
