Effective at 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 14, the city has declared a snow emergency and parking ban on all city streets due to the impending snow storm.

From 10 o’clock tonight until 8 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 16, all vehicles are banned from parking on city streets.

Violators of this emergency declaration are subject to ticketing and towing at the owner’s expense. Towing and ticketing will begin immediately at 10 o’clock tonight. Residents may park in all municipal and school parking lots during the parking ban. Please be aware that due to the nature of this storm, adjustments to the snow emergency and parking ban may be made.

Traveling by vehicle or on foot will be treacherous during the duration of the storm. It is strongly suggested you do not travel during this time period.

Your cooperation during this parking ban is necessary for efficient and safe snow removal efforts.
