O’Fallon Update The Official Quarterly Publication of the City of O’Fallon, Missouri Winter 2010/11 

A special time of year O’Fallon ranked as second safest city in America The City of O’Fallon is the second safest city in the country, according to CQ Press’ annual survey of data comparing crime numbers, rates and trends throughout the country. This is the third year in a row that O’Fallon has been eligible for the rankings. In 2008, the City ranked as the third safest city in America and in 2009, O’Fallon ranked as the country’s 14th safest. “This professional ranking is a tremendous honor for our City and our residents, and it shows that public safety is a top priority for O'Fallon,” said Mayor Bill Hennessy. “It is a testament to the fact that we have one of the finest Police Departments and tremendous first responders. Our City is governed by the vision to be the ‘Best city in Missouri,’ and this ranking is just further evidence that we continually strive to achieve that goal.”

hat do you like most about celebrating the holidays? For me, it’s those beloved Christmas traditions that have been passed down in our family for many years. That’s what this time of year is all about. Remembering those we love and taking an opportunity to spend time together. Here in O’Fallon, we have our own holiday tradition, the Celebration of Lights. For 19 years, families have been piling in their car or van to drive through beautiful Fort Zumwalt Park. This year, everyone who visits will see more than a million brilliant lights and great displays, including some new ones. And, as always, the proceeds will benefit local not-for-profit organizations. Plus, every attendee will receive a valuable flyer offering great discounts for shopping in O’Fallon. I encourage you to take advantage of these tremendous discounts as you do your holiday shopping. Remember to “Keep it in the ‘O” this year as you shop. You will find everything you need and help support your community. Finally, as we come to the end of 2010, let me close by thanking each of you for the opportunity to serve as your Mayor. It is truly a tremendous honor to work for you in this great City. 2010 has been a wonderful year for O’Fallon, and our City Council and I are committed to making 2011 even better! From our families to yours, the O’Fallon City Council and I wish you the merriest of Christmases, a blessed holiday season and a joyous new year!

Snow Removal www.ofallon.mo.us/Snow

W

hen it snows, City of O’Fallon crews work around the clock to get motorists moving as quickly as possible. The crews are responsible for plowing more than 700 "lane miles" of pavement, and receive yearly training to learn their routes and keep their skills fresh. For safety’s sake, always stay clear of snow plows. Please review the FAQs below. For additional information, including neighborhood plowing routes, visit www.ofallon. mo.us/Snow. Or, call the Street Division at 636-379-3808.

Can I call to report an area that needs plowing?

Frequently Asked Questions

If I have an emergency, will the City plow my area first so an ambulance can get through?

Which streets are cleared first? Snow plows are dispatched when snow begins to accumulate, and crews put an emphasis on clearing major thoroughfares, including Main Street, Mexico Road, Feise Road, Bryan Road, etc. Will the City clean my sidewalk or parking lot? The City cannot plow privately-owned streets or lots. Residents and business owners are required to keep their own driveways, sidewalks and private streets clear of ice and snow. When I park on the street, my car gets buried by snow plows. What can I do? By City ordinance, no street parking is allowed after two inches or more of snowfall. If no off-street parking is available, it is strongly recommended that you and your neighbors park along one side of the road, only. No service will be provided if crews feel they can’t safely plow your street because of parked vehicles or other obstructions. How can I keep my driveway from being snowed-in by plowing? Make room for snow discharged from plows by clearing the snow from the end of your driveway and along your curb.

O’Fallon Update City of O’Fallon Newsletter

Yes. O’Fallon’s Snow and Ice Removal Call Center is put into action when the forecast calls for five or more inches of snow, and the snow has begun to accumulate. At that time, you can call 636-379-3826 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. for any snow or ice removal questions or concerns. For questions at other times, please call the City’s Street Division at 636-379-3808. Snow removal information also is posted on the City’s website, www.ofallon.mo.us/Snow.

Call 9-1-1 only in life-threatening emergencies; the dispatcher will contact the O’Fallon Street Division should an emergency vehicle need access to a snow or ice-covered street. Is the City responsible for damage to my basketball hoop, my mailbox, or my decorative landscaping? If your mailbox or landscaping is damaged by a snowplow, please contact the City’s Street Division at 636-379-3808 for repairs or replacements, or fill out a request form online at www.ofallon.mo.us/Snow. However, because O’Fallon’s code prohibits basketball goals and other obstructions from the City’s public right-ofway (mid-street to about 10 feet beyond the curb), the City will not pay for any damage to these items. Place original snow from end of driveway on this side.

Clear this area of snow at end of the driveway to form an opening for snow plow deposits.
