Hays Police Department
For Immediate Broadcast
City Manager Toby Dougherty has ended the Winter Storm Traffic Emergency plan for the City of Hays. People who live or work along emergency snow routes can now return to their normal routine of parking on the snow routes. The City of Hays Public Works Department will continue with snow removal operations throughout the day. Tonight the crews will focus on removing snow from the downtown area.
While the worst of the winter storm is over, the Hays Police Department is asking that motorists limit their travel if at all possible. Those that must travel are advised to do so with caution, and are encouraged to give themselves extra time to reach their destination. Please remember to drive slow, pay attention to vehicles in front of you, and allow for extra stopping distance.
The public’s cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Director of Public Works
