The City of South Lake Tahoe’s Snow Removal crews have been working around the clock to clear snow on city roadways for over a week now. The Public Works Department reports that all City streets have been plowed at least one time. Snow removal crews will continue their 12 hour shifts with primary snow removal. It is estimated that the widening of streets and snow removal of bike paths will begin Saturday morning.

As a reminder, we ask the community to not park on the streets during snow removal. When snow conditions, snow plows have the right of way on streets and vehicles left unattended in the streets are subject to citation and/or tow. The best policy is to keep your vehicle(s) parked off the streets at all times. More information on snow removal is available online at 

The City of South Lake Tahoe's snow removal phone line is (530) 542-6030.
