IOWA CITY (KWWL) -
Forgetting to move your car during a snow emergency this winter could cost you more.
Tuesday night the Iowa City Council raised the city's snow emergency parking fee from $15 to $50.
The city is hoping the higher fine will encourage more people to move cars this winter, helping them clear snow from streets faster. 
In 2009, the fee was $50. However, the fine was "inadvertently removed" in 2013 and set to the default, $15. Tuesday's vote re-establishes the higher rate.
