2017-18 Winter Season
the City is asking that vehicles be parked off of streets to allow for proper snow removal this upcoming winter season.
Also remember, it is unlawful to throw, push, or blow any ice or snow from private property, sidewalks or driveways onto the traveled way of streets as it impedes the passage of vehicles upon the streets and may create hazardous conditions. At times it may be necessary in the business district to move snow on to the streets temporarily, such accumulation shall be removed promptly by the property owner or contractor.
