A spring snow storm dumped a foot of snow on fields, streets and parking lots in the Lake Saint Louis/Wentzville area on Sunday, forcing the cancellation of Palm Sunday church services and causing area businesses to close their doors early.
In Wentzville, Mayor Nick Guccione declared a snow emergency and city officials requested that vehicles be removed from the streets and parked within driveways.
"Under the declaration of a Snow Emergency, the city has the authority to ticket the owners of vehicles remaining on the roadway and have them removed," the city said.
A Facebook post from the Wentzville Police Department asked for residents' cooperation. "Snow plows are reporting difficulty clearing/navigating in subdivisions. Unfortunately, if they cannot travel down the road, the street cannot/will not be plowed. Emergency responders need clear streets to respond to calls for service," the post said.
The Wentzville School District is already on spring break this week, but several private schools in the area closed Monday.
