Parking will not be allowed on the even-numbered side of the streets today and parking will not be allowed on the odd-numbered side for Saturday. The policy’s parking restrictions will be enforced during the entire posted and declared period, with no allowance for parking prior to the end of the posted time period or after a perceived plow pass. Vehicles violating the restrictions will be ticketed and violators fined $30. This is the case when snowfall is at 3 inches.

According to the cities website, if snowfall accumulations are in excess of 6 inches, motor graders and plow-equipped wheel loaders may be dispatched to assist with plowing operations. Contingent upon pavement conditions at the time of deployment, these plows will be assigned to one of the heavy plow routes. The current budget provides that all improved streets are to be cleared for vehicular travel within 48 hours of the conclusion of a winter storm.
