City plow trucks generally begin plowing after two inches of snow has fallen. To avoid a citation, keep vehicles off city streets until they have been plowed from curb to curb. This will ensure that the plow drivers can finish the job safely and efficiently. The below ordinance will go into effect mid-November.

Don’t forget from November 1st to April 1st vehicles cannot be left on the street between the hours of 2:00 am and 7:00 am regardless of snowfall amounts. Help keep city streets safe and clear for everyone by keeping vehicles off the street until plowing is complete!

Sec. 82-152. Parking during snowfall:

It shall be unlawful to park or permit to be parked, or to continue to park or permit to stand, any vehicle upon any street after two inches (2") or more of snowfall, until such time as the snow has been plowed from the street, curb to curb.

Other Permanent Parking Ordinances:

  • No parking in a fire lane. These areas are generally posted.
  • No parking where prohibited by a sign.

  • No parking of vehicles marked “For Sale” upon any public property, including public right-of-ways and easements; or, upon any private property, unless the vehicle is stored, displayed or parked on an improved hard surface designed and improved for vehicle travel and only if the vehicle is registered to the property upon which it is stored, displayed or parked.
