Residents Asked To Help Keep Roads Passable

In anticipation of forecasted snow this week totaling more than 2 inches, residents are asked to assist in keeping roads passable by moving parked vehicles from streets and planning ahead. Keeping streets free and clear of parked vehicles is a tremendous help in the snow removal process, allowing the entire street to be cleared and treated.  This request is being made in preparation of additional snow in excess of 2 inches creating potentially unsafe conditions that may require the declaration of a snow emergency.  Residents are encouraged to plan ahead and park their vehicles off the street.  The City has snow plow crews on standby.

If two inches of snow is received, a snow emergency may be declared, implementing parking restrictions. As a reminder, if a snow emergency is declared between the hours of 7:00 am and 9:00 pm, vehicles must be removed from snow streets within 2 hours of the declaration.  If a snow emergency is declared after 9:00 pm, vehicles must be removed by 9:00 am the following morning.
