A snow emergency is automatically declared whenever an accumulation of snow and/or ice exceeds two inches. When this happens, parking on any portion of a street designated and permanently marked as a snow route is prohibited.
Permanent signs are posted on each street that is designated a snow route and those streets will be given primary attention during snow removal operations. If possible, move your car to the driveway or garage. That way, your car won't be towed or surrounded on three sides by a pile of snow.
As snow fall ceases and those streets designated as emergency snow routes become substantially clear of snow and ice, edge to edge, for the length of an entire block, the no parking emergency is terminated and you may again park on the street.
If you have any questions, please contact Environmental Services at 618-457-3275.
