Due to the pending storm and forecast, a snow emergency will take effect at 6 PM this evening, December 1, 2019. The Snow Emergency Parking Ban blue lights will be activated at noon. Around noon, DPS workers will begin a pre-treating all roads and will be plowing as snow accumulates. Please be safe – the forecast is a slow moving, long storm with anticipated rain, snow and freezing rain expected to last until Tuesday morning.

We will post additional updates as necessary.
During a Parking Ban, all parking is prohibited on all public ways. Any vehicle parked on a public way is subject to ticketing and/or towing at the owner’s expense. The City’s towing priorities are based on access needs for emergency vehicles (Fire, Police, Ambulance), along with the type and duration of the event. Residents may park (free of charge) in city-controlled municipal lots until the ban has been rescinded. Owners of vehicles parked in the municipal lots must remove their cars within 12 hours after the parking ban is lifted so the DPS crews can properly clear those public lots.
