Public Works | Parking Section | Parking During A Snow Emergency
Whenever rain, snow or any other climatic conditions are such that serious travel conditions may result, the Director of Public Works may declare a "Snow Emergency." Appropriate notice of this event will be given to local media for broadcast.
In the event that a "Snow Emergency" has been declared, clearing emergency snow routes will be a priority in order to return the City to normal and safe travel as soon as possible. Pursuant to City ordinance in a snow emergency:
- No vehicle shall be parked on any street designated as an Emergency Snow Route.
- No one shall operate a motor vehicle on an Emergency Snow Route in such a manner or conditions that the vehicle will become stalled due to the vehicle not being properly equipped with effective tire chains or snow tires.
