Snow Emergency February 23rd, 2017

Lisa Claeys

We know it's hard to believe after this beautiful week, but.....Snow Emergency to Begin Thursday, February 23

Due to the forecasted winter storm, a snow emergency has been declared by Mayor Scott to take effect beginning at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 23. The snow emergency declaration prohibits parking or leaving a vehicle unattended on an emergency snow route street.

According to the Sioux City Municipal Code Chapter 10.84.040, after a two inch or greater snowfall it is unlawful and a violation of this chapter for any person to obstruct the orderly removal of snow from the full width of the city’s streets by parking, standing or otherwise leaving unattended any vehicle upon designated emergency snow routes.

Additionally, citizens should park on the even side of the street on even days of the month after seven o’clock (7:00) a.m. until seven o’clock (7:00) a.m. the following day. Vehicles should be parked on the odd street numbered side of the street on odd days of the month during the same time period. No parking is permitted on the side of the street where parking
is prohibited. Residents are encouraged to remove vehicles from on street parking where possible.

Any vehicle found in violation of the snow emergency parking restrictions found in chapter 10.84.040 and 10.84.060 will be towed at the owner’s expense.

We appreciate the support of our residents to help keep our city safe until streets are cleared. Questions regarding parking restrictions should be directed to the Sioux City Police Department Facebook page or www.siouxcitypolice.com.

Updated Press Release Reference Snow Emergency

Lisa Claeys

The City of Sioux City has declared a Snow Emergency effective this morning at 0700 hrs. This declaration means that odd even parking restrictions are in place throughout the city not simply the Snow Emergency Routes. The Sioux City Police Department has been directed to issue parking citations to those not in compliance with the odd/even parking restrictions effective immediately.

 

The purpose of the parking restrictions is to facilitate the efficient clearing of snow from curb line to curb line on all city streets. The parking restrictions will remain in effect until the declaration is rescinded. The police department asks that all motorist do their best to remove vehicles from the appropriate side of the street during this declaration to avoid having to ticket or tow those vehicles.

 

As a reminder the Snow Emergency Declaration states that vehicles need to be parked on the odd or even side of the street as it relates to the date. As an example; today is January 24th and parking is allowed only on the side of the street with even addresses. All other parking restrictions which normally prohibit parking in an area remain in effect. Switching from odd/even parking occurs at 0700 hrs. (7 a.m.).

 

In addition, if and when 2 or more inches of snow accumulation occurs, there will be no parking allowed on either side of designated Snow Emergency Routes marked with the appropriate sign. It is anticipated that towing of vehicles parked on the Snow Emergency Routes will begin once two inches of snow accumulates.

 

Again, the Sioux City Police Department would like to gain as much voluntary compliance with the declaration as possible to avoid having to ticket or tow vehicles.

 

Maps of the city streets marked as Designated Emergency Snow Routes as well as the ordinances related to parking during a Snow Emergency Declaration can be found on the city’s website. 

 

Roads are already slick, please do not travel unless absolutely necessary.

Tax Season Scam

Lisa Claeys

As a reminder, the IRS will never contact you and demand an immediate payment for back taxes owed.  They also will not ask for your Social Security number and banking information over the phone.  If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!  If you have a question about the taxes that you owe, contact the IRS directly.

Lisa Claeys

Please join us on Monday, November 14th at 6:30 PM at the SIoux City Police Department. Dave and Christie Ferris have organized a Community Prayer Services they are calling "Join Hands". They are asking the community to join hands around the police station and parking lot in prayer and solidarity on Monday November 14, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. They are doing this to let our police officers know that they hold them in the highest esteem, they support them, and that they are praying for them!

The celebration and ceremony will begin at 6:30 P.M. and will include prayers from Father Shane Deman (Heelan High School) and Paster Jeff Thelander (Sunnybrook Community Church). Jill Miller will be there and has agreed to sing two songs, "Let There Be Peace on Earth" and "God Bless America". Finally, Dale Meyer (Meyer Brothers) is printing a special Police Officer's Prayer Card to be handed out to attendees.

It is our sincerest hope that we can get many of you there along with your families. We are encouraging everyone to bring a flashlight so we can make this a flashlight vigil. It was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who said, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." Let us all stand together and show our love for each other and for this wonderful community in which we live in.
