With the winter season upon us, the City is hoping to enlist the assistance of its residents when it comes to removing barriers to street plowing.
City plow operators often face various obstacles while working to keep the City streets clear. A frequent occurrence that hampers their efforts occurs when city residents are not following the alternate parking rules.
When residents do not move their vehicles in a timely manor during alternate parking months, plow drivers are often unable to maneuver between cars that are parked on both sides of the street. This affects the City’s efforts to access many streets for snow removal and ice control.
Vehicles are to be moved at 10:00 a.m., there is no grace period before or after that time. There is no parking downtown between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m.
According to the City Code, vehicles that are in violation may be ordered removed by the Chief of Police or other authorized personnel under his command.
