Tracy Police Department News

Great job by those who participated in today's mock crash.

A black lab with a white chest and red collar was found running around the area of Elm St/Center St. If the dog belongs to you please contact us at 507-829-8298. Thank you

The city of Tracy is currently running the street sweeper and will be most of the week. If you don't want that dirty spot on the road in front of your house, maybe find some off street parking during the day this week. Thank you.

***UPDATE*** County Highway has closed Highline Rd from Greenwood Ave to the north and at the High School to the south. ***UPDATE*** Highline Rd by the High School is also starting to flood. County Highway is on their way with signage. Please do not attempt to cross flooded roadways. It is against the law to drive around barricades. There is significant flooding happening now on Greenwood Ave and Front St. The City is asking that you avoid these areas until they clear. City crews are assessing the situations and are determining if this is something they can help with or something we have to let run its course. We thank you ahead of time for your cooperation.

We would like to give a big THANK YOU to the community for working together to get through this blizzard. We issued 0 parking citations and the streets stayed clear for the Street Dept. to do what they could with what Mother Nature handed out. Huge thank you to the Street Dept. for the hours put in getting the roads passable. If you drove around you can see they are using every inch of space to move this snow. Unfortunately there is more snow in the forecast for Wednesday and possibly Saturday. We ask that the community stay informed as your cooperation may be needed again. Thank you again! We're glad everyone stayed safe.

We would like to remind everyone to check your furnace vents and make sure that there are no snow drifts blocking them. Obstructed vents can be extremely dangerous as your house could quickly fill with carbon monoxide.

The City of Tracy has officially declared an EXTENDED Snow Emergency in effect from noon today until 6 pm tomorrow. No parking on city streets during this time. Violators will be cited. We thank you in advance for your cooperation. We would also like to remind everyone that all roads in Lyon County and the majority of SW MN are closed. Please stay off the roads until they are reopened and travel is safe.

Conditions will worsen as we go through the night. Get what you need for the weekend and stay safe at home.

Lyon County has been placed in a Severe Thunderstorm Warning until 1:15 p.m.. Ping pong ball size hail and 60 MPH wind gust have been reported. This warning is primarily for NW Lyon County. As of now, the city of Tracy should not be directly impacted by this storm.

We would like to ask for the public's assistance this weekend. With the impending heavy snow forecasted, we are asking that everyone use off street parking during this storm. We have been informed by the Street Dept. that, depending on the rate and how heavy the snow, they will be trying to clear snow during daytime hours. There is also talk of a 24 hour snow emergency or multiple snow emergencies during the weekend to make sure plows are able to clear curb to curb. If plows have to go around multiple parked or stuck vehicles it only makes it worse for them and other emergency services that might be called during the storm. Not only emergency services but possibly Xcel if the storm knocks out power in town. We are as sick of the snow as everyone else, we are asking that everyone work together this weekend and help keep the roads open and safe.

The national weather service has put Lyon County in a blizzard warning from 7 PM Friday until 7 PM Saturday. Please prepare for the inclement weather.

The City of Tracy is declaring a snow emergency for tonight. No parking on city streets from midnight to 6 am. Violators will be cited. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

The City of Tracy will be in a snow emergency tonight. No parking vehicles on city streets after midnight tonight until 6 AM tomorrow morning. Vehicle will be cited if plowed around.

***Update*** The sleet and rain has moved into town and is coming down pretty good. Roadways are starting to get slick. Looks like a possible tricky commute in the morning. Possibilities of .10" to .25" of ice accumulations.

Public works notified us that they will be out in about an hour. If you could help and move your vehicles from the road to help keep the roads as wide as possible.

The dept. would like to wish Officer Nicole Gehrke good luck as she moves on to the Blue Earth Co. Sheriff's Office. If you happen to see her tonight wish her the best of luck as this will be her last shift with us. Thank you for your service Nicole!

Reminder that City Plows will be out after Midnight to do curb to curb. Any vehicle left on the streets will be ticketed.
