Snow Emergency


Velva Commission President Barta, in accordance with the Public Works Department, has issued a Snow Emergency.  All residents of the City of Velva need to remove vehicles from the streets of the City of Velva for the purpose of facilitating snow removal during the impending storm.  Failure to do so will result in the vehicle being towed at the owner's expense.

The Public Works Director also asks that trash receptacles are removed from roadways immediately after your trash has been collected.  The potential for extremely heavy snowfall is looming, and the Velva Public Works will be working diligently to keep roadways open, however, this may be impossible with the snowfall amounts expected.  Emergency routes will be kept open at all times.  If you have a medical emergency, please call 911.  They contact our Public Works Department to clear access to your home.  Thank you all in advance for your patience.  Stay Safe!
