North Liberty Snow Emergency Ordinance updated

NORTH LIBERTY (KWWL) -- The North Liberty Snow Emergency Ordinance has been updated.

Under this ordinance, snow emergencies will automatically go into effect when snow accumulation reaches two inches.

During snow emergencies parking will no longer be allowed on any street. This is to ensure streets are clear for effective snow removal and other road maintenance.

"Having all vehicles off North Liberty streets during snow emergencies not only allows the crew the clearest, safest path for plowing, but also keeps automobiles from being covered with residual snow push-off. Plus, it allows adequate drainage when the snow melts," Street Superintendent Don Colony said.

Vehicles in violation of the updated ordinance may be ticketed and towed without notice. Each twelve hour period that a vehicle is parked or allowed to remain on any street in violation of this section constitutes a separate and distinct offence.

Snow emergencies may also be declared by the City Mayor or designee at the Mayor's discretion. When the snow emergency is lifted, the information will be posted on the City web site as soon as possible.
