The Snow Emergency Operations team worked throughout the night last night and day today to keep the Mount Rainier community safe during the recent Winter Weather Event. The Public Works Department have cleared city streets and sidewalks of snow and sleet. To reduce the chance of refreezing tonight, Public Works crews will be treating the streets with rock salt, as necessary. 

As of Tuesday, March 14th, 3:00 pm, the Snow Emergency has been lifted. Mount Rainier City Hall will reopen Wednesday, March 15th. Wednesday Trash Collection will be postponed until Thursday, March 16th.

Please be aware that residential and commercial property owners must clear their sidewalks within 24 hours after snowfall stops to allow safe travel for all users. Throwing snow from sidewalks and driveways into the street is prohibited. Put all cleared snow from parked cars and sidewalks in the front yard, or in the tree lawn between the curb and sidewalk. When traveling use extreme caution.
