SNOW EMERGENCY DECLARED
In preparation of a forecast of snow in our area, a Snow Emergency has been declared beginning Monday, February 27 at 7:00pm. Parking restrictions in effect beginning at 9:00pm. The best place for vehicles is off-street, however if you are not on a Snow Emergency Route, your vehicles should be moved to the ODD side of the streets no later than 9pm.
There is NO PARKING on Snow Emergency Routes.
Vehicles not in compliance with these parking restrictions will be ticketed and towed.
Snow Emergency Routes will be maintained as priorities for plowing throughout the storm.
* Trash and recycling will not be picked up on Tuesday, February 28. Pick-up will be delayed one day this week. All bins should be removed from the curb.
* Parking lots and meters are suspended during a Snow Emergency.
All vehicles must be parked in allowable locations, including: private driveways or parking lots owned by the vehicle owner or with permission of the owner; municipal lots; or on the appropriate side of the street.
It can be confusing if one side of your street doesn't typically allow parking. However, during snow emergencies, any pre-existing parking restrictions which designate or prohibit parking on a particular side of the street are temporarily superseded by snow emergency alternate side of the street parking restrictions.
Vehicles still may not block driveways or fire hydrants. While the City offers snow emergency alternate side parking, individuals with access to off-street parking are strongly encouraged to move their vehicles off of the street to allow for the quickest and most effective clearing of snow.
