The purpose of the City’s snow ordinance is for citizens to move their vehicles from public streets and parking lots allowing for effective snow removal. Plows make multiple passes before a street is fully cleared, therefore drivers must not park vehicles on public streets or parking lots until the ordinance is officially lifted. Vehicles parked on public grounds during a snow emergency will be issued a parking citation and towed if necessary.
When the snow ordinance is issued or lifted, the public is alerted through local media outlets. In addition, citizens can sign-up to receive notifications regarding the snow ordinance online or by texting “Join Snow” to 31002.
