Winter Weather Policy
Posted on Monday January 13, 2020
With snow predicted in our forecast, we'd like to remind our citizens of our Winter Weather Policy and our Sidewalk Maintenance Policy.

The City of Benton City uses the following guidelines to make decisions regarding weather-related City closures.

· Benton City follows Hanford’s announcement regarding delays or closures.

· If Hanford runs on a delay, City Hall will open at 9:30am.
If Hanford announces a "mid-day weather closure" after the workday has begun for the day, the City will follow Hanford’s announcement.

Hanford Announcements can be found at

It is the adjacent property owner's responsibility to clear sidewalks of snow and ice. Please do your part in keeping the sidewalks clear for our community's pedestrians.

If you have any questions about the City's policies, please call City Hall at 509-588-3322.
