It’s that time of year again when the City’s winter parking ordinance goes into effect. In an effort to help our Street Department continue doing such an excellent job clearing the snow from the roadways, we are asking for your cooperation in not parking your vehicles on the street when prohibited as outlined below. Bountiful City Parking Ordinance § 13-1-103 states:
“It is unlawful for any person who owns or has possession, custody, or control of any vehicle to park or allow to be parked any vehicle or trailer on any street between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. during the months of November, December, January, February, and March.”
The ordinance also prohibits parking vehicles on the street when it is actually snowing, or within twelve hours thereafter. This prohibition does not include Main Street between 500 South and 400 North. Officers will be putting warnings on vehicles left parked on the street for the first two weeks of November. After that, officers will begin issuing parking citations on all vehicles that are left on the street in violation of this ordinance.
SNOW REMOVAL REMINDERS
- · Remove snow from the sidewalks adjacent to your property within 24 hours after a snow storm. (City Ord. §6-2-115). Making sure your sidewalks are clear makes it safer for pedestrians and drivers during the winter months.
- · Do not blow or shovel snow off your driveway or sidewalk into the street. (City Ord. §6-2-115). Do not defeat the efforts of our snow plow drivers by putting snow into the street. It is dangerous!
