Snow reminder
The team at the Wayne Department of Public Works works hard to clear the snow and ice on our local roads. If the City has a snowfall of 4 inches or more, residents are asked not to park on public streets. You will be notified via the general media when the snow emergency is over and street parking is once again allowed. The DPW clears major roads first, then residential streets, dead-end streets and cul de sac areas. If you have any questions, please contact the Wayne Department of Public Works at 734-721-8600.
