Kenton Safety Service Director Issues Advisories

Posted on January 18, 2021

With inclement weather affecting Kenton’s roads, city management advises residents of certain information which should improve area traffic safety:

  • At this time, the City of Kenton’s capabilities extend only as far as applying salt to the roads. Salt is first applied to Main, Detroit, Franklin, and Columbus Streets, followed by the side streets around the schools, then side-street intersections and hills. Most side streets between the intersections receive no salt.
  • If the City of Kenton receives four-or-more inches of snow, the mayor and safety service director will declare a snow emergency–during which cars may park on the even-numbered side of the street on even-numbered days of the month and the odd side of the street on odd-numbered days of the month, with violators to have their cars towed at owners’ expense.
  • Per City Ordinance 660.05, owners and residents must clean and clear any snow, ice, or dirt in front of or along their property within 12 hours of snowfall or two hours of notification from the Safety Service Director.

Kenton residents are also advised to place their trash containers curbside with the handle facing their house prior to six a.m. on their collection day, and to remove their carts as soon as possible before six p.m. that day.
