Snow is predicted--and a lot of it! Make a plan to get your cars off Village streets before 2 inches falls!

Yet another reminder this week about the much anticipated snowfall along with the much dreaded possibility of receiving an ordinance violation citation once 2 inches of snow falls....


It's fairly simple. Move your car off Village of Montgomery streets before those 2 inches of snow fall to the ground.

HELP US HELP YOU. Emergency responders HAVE to be out in this inclement weather and have to be able to get to where help is needed. If travel is not necessary--stay home. Shovel, build a snowman, drink some hot chocolate, watch a movie, enjoy family time. The options are limitless...

Thank you for understanding and being a part of our community. Let's continue to make Montgomery great.

Lastly, here is the snow ordinance one more time:

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.
