Q: What should I do if a snow emergency is declared?

  • No vehicle is permitted to park or stand unattended on any open municipal parking lot between the hours of 12:00 AM and 7:00 AM, so the lots may be plowed and sanded.

Vehicles found in violation of the above parking regulations may be towed at the vehicle owner's expense.

For the duration of a snow emergency, individuals who have no off-street parking available may park their cars in the three-hour public parking areas of the McKay Center and Columbus Avenue parking garages without penalty.  City residents are encouraged to clear snow from the sidewalks abutting their property and around fire hydrants located near their houses.  It is a violation of City ordinance to plow or otherwise dispose of snow onto City streets.
