In a Snow Emergency, citations will be issued to those who have their vehicles parked along the Emergency Snow Routes of 15th Street from 23rd Avenue to 10th Avenue, and 17th Street from 23rd Avenue to 10th Avenue.

Citizens are also reminded that as per Section 92.30 of the City Code, it is the responsibility of the owner and/or occupant of real estate to remove snow and/or ice from sidewalks within 24 hours after the cessation of precipitation.

The City urges no unnecessary travel on city streets as we anticipate dangerous road conditions. Thank you for your cooperation.
