As winter weather conditions have subsided, the City of Petersburg is committed to make sure our major routes and residential areas are clear. The City of Petersburg Department of Public Works is continuing with snowplow operations to make sure major roadways are clear with no travel difficulties. For secondary and neighborhood roads that still have snow or ice coverage, crews are continuing to work to clear these areas.
City residents and businesses are reminded that per City code (98-2132), you must clear the snow on sidewalks. The City will not clear commercial or private entrances or driveways.
Also, due to the winter weather, trash collection will be delayed one day this week. Thursday routes will be collected today, Friday, February 27 and regular Friday collection will occur on Saturday. For any further question, please contact Street Operation at (804) 733-2415.
