Another Round of Winter Weather Expected…Again!

With yet another winter storm expected to hit our area tomorrow afternoon, MoDot has issued another advisory for travelers. As always, it’s best to call before you head out when the weather turns bad and the roads become snow covered.

JEFFERSON CITY – More winter weather is expected for many parts of the state on Tuesday. The system will bring snow beginning in the early afternoon and lasting into the late evening in some areas.

Snow is expected to be heavy at times with rates reaching 1 inch per hour with total accumulations in the 2 to 4 inch range for many areas. White out conditions could affect travel with this system. Drivers should use caution and plan accordingly as much of the activity is expected to occur during the afternoon rush hour and the evening commute.

If traveling, make sure to have a full tank of gas before heading out Tuesday. If you encounter car troubles or are involved in a crash, please remain in your vehicle.

Harrisonville Brush Collection

he City of Harrisonville is planning to hold a brush collection event to collect the limbs that fell from recent stormy.

The drop off will be held at 2400 S. Jefferson Parkway, across from the Harrisonville Community Center at a time to be determined.

The event is limited to Harrisonville residents and businesses and no contractor or developers will be allowed to use the drop off site.

Tree limbs and sticks will be the only items accepted; no paper or plastic bags will be allowed, as well as no plant waste or trash. There will be no limit to the amount of limbs allowed at the sight. No limbs may be dropped off without a City representative present.

The City understands that some people don’t have the resources necessary to bring limbs to the drop off location. With that in mind, there are organizations willing to help. If you need assistance, please contact Deputy City Clerk Daniel Barnett.
