City Manager's Blog - Snowplowing and Winter Ordinances

Though we have been experiencing a mild winter with very little snow fall thus far, our Public Works Department continues to prepare for an inevitable West Michigan snow and ice-filled winter.

Residents can help prepare as well. One way that you can help is by ensuring that your tress are trimmed along the sidewalks (the City does hire a private contractor to do this work as necessary), also please make sure to remove items such as basketball hoops, trailers, unlicensed vehicles, leaf piles, toys and other obstructing items from the street right-of-way. This is the area between the sidewalk on one side of the street to the sidewalk on the opposite side of the street. These items can hinder winter maintenance activities such as snow removal.

Also when clearing your property of snow, remember that you may not pile snow on sidewalks and in the parkway area between the street and sidewalk, do not plow snow onto someone else’s property or across the street, do not park vehicles over the sidewalk and do not place garbage cans on the sidewalk for pick up

Also, parking in winter can be a challenge, but one way to save yourself a headache, and a ticket, is to remember that the City has an odd/even parking ordinance that goes into effect each year on Dec. 1 and concludes on the last day of February.

SECTION 70.80 - ODD EVEN PARKING FOR WINTER AND SNOW EMERGENCIES:

From December 1 through the end of February of each year and during any declared snow emergency, any motor vehicles and any other licensed trailers or equipment shall be parked only on that side of the street having even numbers on even numbered calendar days and on that side of the street having odd numbers on the odd numbered calendar days between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 7:00 p.m. of the same day with the following exceptions: When a residence is on a cul-de-sac, on-street parking shall only be on the even numbered calendar days. When a residence is on a street already posted "No Parking", the no parking restriction shall apply.

Tickets will be issued to violators.

Be safe on the roads this winter!
