In an effort to keep our residents safe and streets cleared during the winter, the City of Crest Hill would like to remind residents that parking on any City roadway after 2" of snow has accumulated is prohibited until the roads have been cleared.
Please keep the roadways clear so Public Works can keep the roads clean.

accumulation of two inches of snow or more. This prohibition shall remain in effect until such time as the
street or alley has been plowed or the snow has been removed there from. A city street shall not be
deemed to have been plowed until the lane of traffic nearest the curb has been plowed or the snow has

the interest of public safety and on streets with heavier traffic flow.

HELP CLEAR FIRE HYDRANTS
The Lockport Fire Department asks residents and businesses to help in keeping fire hydrants clear of ice and snow. It’s important for the Fire Department to have approximately three feet around the hydrant so they have an area to work and to get quick access in case of a fire. If a hydrant is lost or buried in snow, firefighters can lose valuable time trying to locate it when they first arrive at a fire.
