Snow Removal

When a Snow Emergency is called all normal parking rules and regulations are temporarily suspended in the city.

You still CANNOT block hydrants, park in crosswalks, or park in a handicap spot without a handicap permit.

At the time the Emergency goes into effect you must move your car to the even side of the road for the first 24 hours.

Failure to do this may result in your car being ticketed and/or towed.
