Reminder: Snow Ordinance in Effect

snow flakeNo person shall park, abandoned, or leave unattended any vehicle on any public street, alley, or City-owned off street parking area during snow removal operations – UNLESS the snow has been removed or plowed from the street, alley or parking area and the snow has ceased to fall.  If your vehicle is parked in the street during snow removal, your vehicle WILL BE TICKETED and the vehicle will be towed if not moved in a timely manner.  Persons who commute may leave their vehicles at Tool’s Point Park.  It takes several hours for snow plows to cover the city.  Resident cooperation is the key to helping the city remove the snow in a timely and safe manner.
