Notification of Future Tree Trimming
Crews working for Ameren Illinois will be trimming trees in and around your area in the near future. Our qualified line clearance trimmers will trim trees that could interfere with electric lines running from pole to pole. Our contractors are nationally recognized as professional arboricultural companies who meet the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) pruning standards and pruning methods endorsed by the International Society of Arborists (ISA).

Attached are maps and common addresses of the areas affected. In addition to notifying you, Ameren Illinois will mail a notice to customers who may be affected by the distribution tree trimming work. We will also provide public notice in local newspapers. To update or change your contact information, please contact us at

We are committed to providing safe, reliable and affordable power to your community. Tree trimming helps us minimize the likelihood of power outages and safety hazards. Please visit Trimming for Reliability to learn more about our tree trimming program and tips for safely planting trees around power lines.

We recognize the importance of trees to your community, so we have established the Right Tree, Right Place Grant Program to help replace trees that must be removed for safety or reliability reasons. Please see the attached flyer for details.

Snow Routes

The Street Department divides the city into six sections with at least one truck in each section.  We will start snow and ice removal on priority routes, which include arterial streets, and collector streets.  Usually within 3 hours after the snow stops falling, the priority streets will be cleared.  At that time, snow and ice removal begins on secondary streets, which include residential streets, cul-de-sacs, and City-owned parking lots.  Under normal circumstances, these are completed within 8 hours after the snow stops falling.  Snow and ice crews continue working around the clock until snow and ice removal is completed.

The Public Works Director, or designee, will declare emergency snow routes in effect for any snowfall of two inches or more.  

  • City Square (downtown)
  • 6th Street from Lincoln Avenue to Rail Road Avenue
  • 7th Street from Lincoln Avenue to Olive Street
  • Harrison Avenue from Division Street to 18th Street
  • Jackson Avenue from Division Street to 18th Street
  • Monroe Avenue from Division Street to 18th Street
  • Grant Avenue from 4th Street to University Avenue
  • 10th Street from Lincoln Avenue to Monroe Avenue
  • 11th Street from Lincoln Avenue to Monroe Avenue
Vehicles remaining on Emergency Snow Routes after the time designated by Public Works will be towed prior to snowplowing.  Parking remains prohibited on these streets until Public Works cancels the Emergency Snow Routes.  Never assume that parking is allowed because plows have been down the street.
