With the first snow of the season, city residents are reminded to slow down when driving and be careful when driving on ice.
The Winner Police Department reminds drivers to clear the winds before hitting the road in winter weather. Also clear snow from headlights and back brake lights.
After a snow fall, the city will issue a snow alert and persons are reminded to listen to the radio or watch for notices on TV. During a snow alert, vehicles need to be removed from the street until the street is plowed curb to curb.
Persons can also sign up at the city office to get notices of alerts on their smart phones.
Persons are also reminded when a storm is approaching to get campers and trailers off the street so roads can be plowed.
