Hundreds towed as snow clean up rolls on


City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz says police towed 186 vehicles during the day Monday for violating the alternate-side snow emergency parking rules. That's on top of nearly 100 cars towed during two nights of the city's snow-route parking ban.

The snow emergency parking regulations continue today — with drivers instructed to park on the even-numbered side of residential streets until 6 p.m. — so crews can plow those streets to the curb.

City officials now say we got 20.5 inches of snow from the weekend storm — and we can look forward to getting another couple inches of snow this afternoon and tonight.

Temperature will be in the upper 20’s today falling to around 10 degrees tonight.

Assistant Public Works Director James Maiworm says detailed clearing of sidewalks around city properties will continue today. Continued cleanup of city parking lots will also be a priority as many lots are parked at capacity and snow storage space is limited.

Recycling collections and solid waste pickup will continue but service is behind schedule. Maiworm says collections should be caught up as conditions improve by the end of the week.

He adds that while parking restrictions are currently scheduled to expire this evening, they may be extended if street conditions require it.
