Residents are being told to avoid parking on these residential streets between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on their scheduled day so the roads can be widened as the piles of snow are removed. Owners could get ticketed and have their vehicles towed.

The City says that when the streets are plowed, snow may be pushed onto sidewalks and into driveways. It is the residents’ responsibility to clear those areas.

The City has also been asking residents to clear away snow and ice from catch basins to prevent flooding, and from around fire hydrants to help firefighters in the event of an emergency.
