The City will lift its snow emergency regulations effective at 8 a.m. this morning. Residents who had parked in municipal or school lots during the snow emergency have a two-hour window starting at 8 in which to move their vehicles. Cars still parked in city lots at 10 a.m. this morning may be subject to ticketing and towing as we must ensure the lots are plowed and treated properly before ice sets in.
Please also note that per City ordinance, property owners have six daylight hours following the lifting of a snow emergency in which to clear snow and ice from sidewalks. Paths must be shoveled to a minimum width of 42 inches, and snow may not be shoveled into the street. Failure to comply with these regulations will result in fines.
