10.20.060 - Parking during or after a snowfall.

A.

It is 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 and pushed to within eight inches from the curb.

B.

Whenever a vehicle is parked in violation of this section, and where such vehicle constitutes an obstruction to traffic, interferes with the use of streets or in any manner creates a dangerous or unsafe condition, such vehicle is declared a nuisance and a hazard to public safety, and a police officer or code enforcement officer of the village 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 a public garage shall be paid by the owner or operator of the vehicle, in addition to any other penalties imposed by this section.

C.

The removal of snow from public streets in the village of North Aurora shall be performed only by village employees and other persons specifically employed and/or directed by the village to perform such service. Removal of snow from village streets by any other person is prohibited. Notwithstanding the foregoing language to the contrary, this section is not intended to prohibit individual homeowners from removing snow from in front of their mail boxes in order to make them accessible by mail carriers from the street as long as no other provision of this section is violated in so doing.

D.

No person shall dump, pile, push, or otherwise place snow at or near a street intersection so as to violate the line of sight easement (illustrated in Exhibit 1 attached to the ordinance codified in this section) as provided in the Village of North Aurora subdivision control ordinance, Article III, Section 3-6, Subsection F, which provides that no obstructions shall be placed in the line-of-sight easement which exceeds three feet above the centerline grade. Any person who dumps, pushes, piles or otherwise places snow in the line-of-sight easement and allows it to remain after ceasing the activity, or who directs, causes or allows snow to be dumped, piled, pushed or otherwise placed in the line-of-sight easement and allows it to remain after the activity ceases, shall be in violation of this section.

E.

A fine of no less than fifty dollars ($50.00) and no more than seven hundred fifty dollars ($750.00) shall be imposed for each violation of this section, each day that a violation continues being considered a separate violation. In addition to, or in place of, a fine, this section may be enforced by court proceeding for injunction or any other remedy available by ordinance, by statute, or by law. This section shall be enforced by the village police department, code enforcement officer, designee of the village board, or any other individual with code enforcement authority.
