What is a Snow Ordinance?
No person shall park any vehicle or permit the same to remain standing upon any public street in the City during the following times or periods:
The City of Bondurant Snow Ordinance shall take effect following a declaration of same by the City Administrator or Street Superintendent. Vehicles must be removed from any City street by 8:00 p.m., and must remain off of the City street until 8:00 a.m., the following day, or until the snow declaration has been lifted, whichever occurs latest. Vehicles not removed by 8:00 p.m., will be ticketed for violating the City’s Snow Ordinance. After being ticketed, vehicles not removed from the City street by 8:00 a.m., the following day will be towed, with expenses for towing payable by the vehicle owner.
To help ensure that sidewalks are safe during the winter, City Ordinance requires residents to remove snow and ice from sidewalks within 24 hours following the end of the snowfall. Property owners who do not comply are subject to a municipal citation.
A helpful hint for residents – clear your sidewalk after the snowplows have finished plowing to the curb. When you remove snow from your sidewalk, please remember that City Ordinance prohibits placing that snow in the street. The unnatural deposit of snow from driveways and parking lots onto the City right-of-way is also prohibited.
Equipment operators often work 12 or more hours in a shift and appreciate courteous and friendly drivers and pedestrians. Please remember to maintain a safe following distance of 75 feet from all snow removal equipment.
