Thank you for your email. Your assertion is correct. Vehicles are not allowed to park on these routes during a declared "Snow Emergency." Although there was snowfall this past weekend, it was not declared a "Snow Emergency" and therefore vehicles were allowed to remain parked.
Residents will be notified through a number of public announcements in the event that a snow emergency is declared. One can always check our website or call 311 to get the most current information when there are inclement weather conditions.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
