[ARCHIVED] Snow Removal Reminders for Residents

City Code 5-3-9 states: No vehicle shall be parked on any street, roadway, or roadway shoulder: 1) for a period of twenty four (24) hours after the accumulation of two inches (2") or more of snow; or 2) until the street or roadway has been cleared of snow.

The Police Department assists the Street Division during any snowfall event that produces two inches of snow or more by enforcing the City's parking ban on streets. The City Code is in place to keep the streets clear for snowplows to efficiently and safely remove snow curb to curb. While the Police Department does not have control over when snowfall will be removed from City streets, it is empowered to ticket and tow vehicles in violation. Towing of vehicles is predicated on various factors, which include the length of time the vehicle was illegally parked and the type of hazard it presents.

Snow removal is done on all main and through streets before clearing begins on side streets, dead ends, or cul-de-sacs. The City does not provide snow removal from sidewalks or driveway entrances. Private property owners are responsible for snow removal on their property. It is unlawful to shovel, plow or otherwise deposit snow onto City streets, as this causes a hazard for motorists and emergency vehicles.
