Snow Removal

All streets within the city are a priority; however, each contractor is directed to give extra attention to areas of high-traffic, treacherous hills, and ice-prone bridges. Prior to a storm, some areas may be pre-salted.

If any roadways are in need of service, call City Hall at 636-458-0440.

Keep Your Driveway Entrance from Filling With Snow

The diagram to the right shows how you can clear snow around the end of your driveway a certain way in order to reduce the possibility that you will have to do very much re-clearing after a snowplow truck goes by on the road next to your driveway.

Wildwood's Department of Public Works administers the city's snow removal and deicing services. To cover the city's needs sufficiently, all city streets are divided into 25 separate snow routes among five different contractors. Each route will have at least one truck servicing it, but may have additional support during larger storms.

The idea is to place as much snow as possible in the direction of travel on your side of the roadway. Next is to clear an area from your driveway opening to form a "pocket" for the snow from the roadway to go into instead of at the end of your driveway.

The result is that more of the snow accumulation from clearing the roadway will go into this open pocket area and less will wind up at the end of your driveway.
