With a winter storm warning in effect for much of Saturday and Sunday, Richfield Patch wanted to remind residents of the city's snow parking ban ordinance, which went into effect on Nov. 1. Up to six inches are predicted to fall in the Twin Cities area.
If you want to avoid a ticket or your car being towed, here are a few things to know about Richfield's snow parking ban ordinance:
- The ban takes effect after two or more inches of snowfall.
- Snow removal crews can begin plowing and police can begin tagging and towing at any time after the snowfall.
- Once the streets are plowed from curb to curb, vehicles can be parked again.
- As a precaution, remove vehicles from the street when two or more inches of snow are predicted.
In addition, Richfield Public Works says it is also illegal to place your trash carts and cans in the street, alley or on the sidewalk, as this also interferes with plowing initiatives. The ordinance is in effect until April 15.
If you have questions or comments about the ordinance, call 612-861-9178 for recorded information, call 612-861-9170 for Richfield Public Works or call 612-861-9800 for Richfield Public Safety.
