Seasonal parking restrictions set to begin
DeKALB – The city’s Public Works Department is reminding residents that seasonal parking restrictions will begin Saturday and be in effect through March 31 regardless of weather conditions.
Additionally, there are designated snow routes which prohibit parking after a 2-inch snowfall, until plows have cleared the street completely.
Snow emergencies are declared by Public Works Director Tim Holdeman and then shared with local media sources, according to the city’s website.
Tips for parking during winter weather can be found on the city’s website and include parking your vehicle in a driveway when not in use; driving a minimum distance of 100 feet behind snow removal equipment, especially while they are in use; and not placing snow on the street when clearing private sidewalks or driveways. A map with the snowplowing schedule can be found on the city’s website. The public works department encourages residents to follow local media for winter weather forecasts.
