Emergency Snow Routes are designated by signs. Residents living in these areas are prohibited to park their vehicles on the streets during a declared snow emergency. If cars are parked on the streets, during a declared snow emergency, the cars are subject to being towed at the owner’s expense or plowed in.
After the Emergency Snow Routes have been cleared, the other streets will be cleared based on the traffic load of the given street.
