  • No vehicle shall be operated on any snow emergency route without skid chains, winter type mud or snow tires or operative mechanical or electrical sanders or abrasive sanding materials. Winter type mud and snow tires are defined as any new, recapped, retreaded or rebuilt tires for rear wheels of motor vehicles, such tires having anti-skid patterns impressed or cut into the tread surfaces to form bars, buttons or blocks especially designed to give effective traction on snow, mud or ice covered streets.
  • Although it is not a designated snow emergency route, persons parking on Maple Street from Lincoln Avenue to Ninth Street are advised to remove their cars, as the plows frequently pass through this area.
  • Residents may park free of charge on metered City parking lots for the duration of a snow emergency.  Please note this free parking only applies to City lots with parking meters.
