Remember the Village of Montgomery Snow Ordinance--no parking on village streets once 2 inches of snow has fallen!

The Montgomery Police Department would like to remind everyone of the Village Ordinance prohibiting parking your vehicle on the street once 2 inches of snow has fallen. Please watch the weather reports---snow is predicted starting this weekend.

Roadways must be clear of vehicles in order for our Public Works Department to safely clear the streets from curb to curb.

Sec. 11-43. - Parking during snow removal prohibited; removal of vehicles.
(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to park a motor vehicle or, if parked, to allow a motor vehicle to remain parked or standing in any public street or alley during or after a snowfall in which there is an accumulation of two inches of snow or more. This prohibition shall remain in effect until such time as the street or alley has been plowed or the snow has been removed therefrom. A village street shall not be deemed to have been plowed until the lane of traffic nearest the curb has been plowed or the snow has been removed therefrom.

(b) Whenever a police officer of the village finds a vehicle parked in violation of this section and where such vehicle constitutes an obstruction to traffic, interferes with the use of streets or in any other manner creates a dangerous or unsafe condition, such vehicle is declared a nuisance and a hazard to public safety; and the police officer may cause the removal of such vehicle to a public garage or other place of safety during snow removal operations of the village on such streets; and the expense of such removal and storage in such public garage shall be paid by the owner or operator of the vehicle in addition to any other penalties imposed by this chapter.

(Ord. No. 554, ยง 3, 5-12-87; Ord. No. 622, 11-27-89)
