Marshalltown Snow Ordinance is in effect

The Marshalltown Public Works department has declared a snow emergency for Marshalltown. The snow ordinance went into effect at noon.

It is anticipated snowfall will continue into Jan. 16. Snow ordinance parking restrictions will remain in effect until plowing operations conclude. Remove vehicles from the designated emergency snow routes in order to help facilitate snow removal operations. The Marshalltown Police Department will ticket and tow vehicles found parked on the emergency snow routes. Vehicles towed are at the owner’s expense.

Maps of designated snow routes are available on the City of Marshalltown website, main page under the Community tab at www.marshalltown-ia.gov. Snow routes are clearly marked by red and white street signs.

Additionally, pursuant to Chapter 77 of the Marshalltown Code of Ordinances, there are non-snow routes where parking is prohibited during snow removal operations.

The stopping, parking or leave standing of motor vehicles when snow removal operations are in progress by the City of Marshalltown on the following designated streets, parts of streets or public ways is hereby prohibited on either side of the street. These streets include:

• All cul-de-sac circles:

• South 16th Street from Church Street to Linn Street

• East side of South Fourth Avenue from Church Street to Nevada Street

• South Sixth Street from Main Street to Madison Street

• North Sixth Street from Highland Drive to Jerome Street

• North Eighth Street from Summit Street to State Street

• East Boone Street from Third Avenue to Fourth Avenue

• Highland Drive from Fifth Street to Sixth Street

• West Linn Street from 16th Street to a point 861 feet east

• Melody Lane

• Noble Street from South Seventh Avenue to South Eighth Avenue

• Wood Street from South Seventh Avenue to South Eighth Avenue

• Young Street

Any vehicle found parked on these streets during snow removal operations will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.

While snow ordinance parking restrictions only apply to the designated snow routes and the streets listed, residents are encouraged to cease all on street parking during snow events. Assistance with this request allows city crews the space they need to remove snow from all city streets.
