The City must remove the snow from the traveled portion of
the road. On two-way streets where there is only parking on one side, the plow
operator cannot push the snow away from the parked cars into the oncoming
traffic, as it would create a hazard and liability. Snow is always pushed away
from the oncoming traffic. When heavy snowfalls are predicted, residents are
asked where possible not to park on the roads. This is done to reduce the
chance of plowing in parked vehicles, eliminating the chance of damaging
vehicles and allowing for a more efficient plowing operation.
