Whenever rain, snow or any other climatic conditions are such that serious travel conditions may result, the Director of Public Works may declare a "Snow Emergency." Appropriate notice of this event will be given to local media for broadcast.

In the event that a "Snow Emergency" has been declared, clearing emergency snow routes will be a priority in order to return the City to normal and safe travel as soon as possible. Pursuant to City ordinance in a snow emergency:

  • No vehicle shall be parked on any street designated as an Emergency Snow Route.
  • No one shall operate a motor vehicle on an Emergency Snow Route in such a manner or conditions that the vehicle will become stalled due to the vehicle not being properly equipped with effective tire chains or snow tires.

 

Snow routes are marked by "Emergency Snow Route" signs. Visit the snow plan for more information and maps of the Emergency Snow Routes.
