CLP Streets:  Crystal Lake Park has a part-time Street Commissioner.  The City solicits bids and contracts with independent companies for maintenance projects.  Some street repairs are made by utility companies such as Missouri American Water for water main breaks.  With the exception of The Willows, all streets were resurfaced between 2012 and 2014.  In 2015 & 2016, minor patches were made to several streets, but none were closed completely.  The Willows manages its own streets which were last done in 2015.  CLP also contracts for snow removal.  See Snow Policy below.
Snow / Ice Removal Policy:  In anticipation of bad weather, the city's contractor treats all streets  in advance.   The contractor will plow all streets after several inches build up and a final cleanup plowing and salting of all streets will be done after all precip has stopped.

PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE STREET when bad weather is forecast so the streets can be salted and plowed efficiently and safely.  Thanks.
