9 AM Thursday City of Everett Update

December 30, 2021

Everett

Here in central Everett, Washington we got about three inches of new snow overnight and it is currently snowing again. Here is the latest update just released by the City of Everett.

Current operations:

Updated 8:45 a.m., 12/30/2021

**Please call City offices before venturing out. Some offices have delayed openings and may close early**

Public Works crews are out plowing and sanding with salt around the clock, following the snow and ice removal plan. Due to the very cold temperatures it will take time to break up and remove the compact snow and ice. We appreciate your patience. Since Sunday morning, they have plowed 5,732 miles and applied 1,646 cubic yards of sand/salt. You can report trouble areas within city limits by calling 425-257-8821.

City Clerk’s Office: Office open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on 12/30, and available by phone and email 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Everett Parks: Kasch Park fields, Phil Johnson fields, and both golf courses will remained closed until the snow is gone. Some parks may have limited access and restrooms may be closed due to snow and cold temperatures.

Everett Transit snow routes: Route 29 is currently on snow route, all other routes are operating normally. Fare free rides available to and from Everett cold weather shelters and warmer centers

Other City offices and services are operating on regular schedules, unless noted above.

Please clear snow from on top of and around any storm drains on your street to speed up drainage from snow melt and keep water from traveling where it’s not wanted.

Reminder: it is the responsibility of property owners to clear the sidewalks adjacent to their property (EMC 13.08) and it helps community members travel safely in snowy conditions.
