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.
