Evanston snow plow crews have cleared main streets and secondary roads of the nearly two inches of snow that fell overnight.

Streets and Sanitation Superintendent James Maiworm says cleanup of residential streets will continue through the daylight hours today.

He says downtown sidewalks are clear and crews are working to clear more sidewalks elsewhere.

He says the city measure 1.8 inches of snow this morning at the Public Works yard.

The National Weather Service says more snow is expected Sunday and Monday.

  1. Snow plowing information…

    No bulletin received yet from City as to whether even-day/odd-day plowing of residential streets is warranted, but since you do quote a City official, it would have been nice to obtain and include a statement as to the likelihood of, or the plan for, initiating that activity today.  Or, someone might have referred to the exact inches of snow required to trigger that activity and the car-relocating it necessitates.  Thank you.  Will watch for updates, from you or the City.

    1. Snow news

      Here at Evanston Now, generally speaking, we report what is happening — not what is not happening.

      Therefore, you should rest assured that if there are going to be snow parking restrictions, and we know about it, we'll tell you about it.

      If you are not familiar with the general standards for implementing the various snow-related parking restrictions in Evanston, you can find a detailed explanation on the city website along with numbers you can call to check if you're still confused.

      In this case, the snowfall, as the story stated, was under two inches, which means none of the standards for imposing parking restrictions were met.
