To help the workers be more efficient you can:

  • move vehicles off the roads and away from sidewalks
  • do not place your snow on city streets
  • keep children, pets and yourselves a safe distance from heavy snow removal equipment

Vehicles impeding snow removal will be ticketed and/or towed, the notice said. Placing your snow on public streets is also subject to a ticket.
