Snow Emergency Ordinance 303-03

Casting of snow or ice into roadway,

placing objects in roadway to reserve parking.

 

During times of snow or snow emergencies, it is prohibited by ordinance to cast snow or ice into the roadway. This causes a hazard for drivers as the piles of snow compact and freeze, causing drivers to potentially veer into a parked car, person, or other object.

The placing of objects in the roadway to reserve on-street parking spaces is also prohibited. Items placed in the street are considered abandoned and may be removed without liability.

Fines for the listed offenses are:

Any person who violates any provision of this Ordinance shall, upon conviction thereof, be punished by any combination of the following: a fine not less than $100.00 and not more than $1000.00; a period of community service not exceeding ninety (90) Days.
