KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Mayor Sly James wants Kansas City businesses to stagger their openings on Wednesday morning to prevent a crush of commuters on snow-packed roads.

James and City Manager Troy Schulte suggest that businesses located from 63rd Street south open their doors at 8 a.m. Businesses from the Missouri River south to 63rd Street should open at 9 a.m. Businesses north of the river should open at 10 a.m., city officials said.

Kansas City municipal offices will be open.

He thanked residents for their caution and diligence, which helped reduce traffic jams and wrecks. He said the city had problems last year during February snowstorms, but lessons were learned that reduced issues on Tuesday.

James reminded residents of parking rules.

In Kansas City, residents are urged not to park on the street in order to make it easier for snow plow operators to do their jobs. If you must park on the street, you are asked to park on the west side of streets running north and south, and the north side of streets running east and west.

Violators face tickets or towing.

The city's command center is open and from where officials are using traffic monitors, GPS and weather maps to track crews and plows. Both James and Schulte were responding to resident concerns via social media.
