With a winter storm warning in effect, North Liberty will prohibit on-street parking beginning Thursday, Feb. 8, at 6 p.m. to help crews clear streets. The prohibition is set to expire at 6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 9, 2018.
Parking on streets is not permitted until the snow emergency has been lifted. Crews will be working to clear roads through the snowfall. During the storm, roads may be slick or impassable; drivers are urged to avoid travel if possible.
Prohibiting on-street parking during snow emergencies ensures city streets are clear for effective snow removal. Any vehicles in violation of the ordinance may be ticketed and towed without notice. Each 12-hour period that a vehicle is parked or remains on any public street in violation of this ordinance constitutes a separate and distinct offense.
Off-street parking for those without available garage, driveway or other paved parking space is available at public parking areas, including the North Liberty Community Center, 520 W. Cherry Street.
Additionally, residents are reminded to clear their sidewalks within 48 hours of a snowfall, and asked to consider clearing around storm drains, to help prevent ice dams, and fire hydrants, to allow critical unimpeded access in the event of a fire.
