Winter is here

During the winter months, the City’s goal is to keep the streets safe for travel. The City is responsible for more than 90 miles of road, equating to about 180 miles of plowing.
With the snow season creeping up on us we wanted to reach out and let the public know of rules about parking vehicles on the street during the winter months.

Under City Code 19.18.10, Parking 

During Snow Removal From Streets, it reads, “It is illegal for the owner or driver of any vehicle to park, cause, or allow to be parked such vehicle upon a City street or right-of-way during a snowstorm when a measurable amount of snow has fallen, or following a snowstorm when a measurable amount of snow has fallen, and the City’s snow removal equipment has not yet been utilized to remove the snow.”

The Streets Department has also asked that all portable basketball stands are removed off of the roadways. City crews conduct snow removal and road salting operations around the clock, if necessary during winter storms.

In order to achieve this, the City has a prioritized sequence in which the roads will be plowed and salted. Residents are reminded not to park vehicles on roadways during or immediately after a snowstorm to allow snow plows to clear roadways. Additional information regarding the City’s snow removal guidelines and a map of street prioritization are available.
