The city of Oskaloosa announced a snow emergency parking ban going into effect tonight at 9pm and continuing until further notice. This means that inside city limits, Parking is prohibited on public streets, with vehicles parked on city streets during this time to be ticketed and/or towed at the owner’s expense. If you need to be on the road, follow emergency snow routes, which are designated by signs with a white snowflake on a blue field and will be given top priority in clearing accumulated snow. In addition, sidewalks are to be cleared of snow within 24 hours after the snow stops. Snow should not be blown, pushed, or placed upon a city street. This includes snow pushed by homeowners and snow removal contractors. For more info on Osky’s Snow Emergency Parking Ban, visit the Oskaloosa City website, oskaloosaiowa.org, or contact city hall.
