DeKALB – Although it’s still technically fall, early season snowy weather also is a chance for an early reminder that the city of DeKalb has winter parking restrictions.
The DeKalb Police Department is reminding residents that the city has a designated snow route, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page.
According to the city’s parking ordinances, all vehicles must be removed from the street during or after a snowfall that accumulates 2 inches or more of snow. Vehicles must remain off the streets until the area has been plowed.
Streets that are designated snow routes are marked with a sign.
A detailed list can be found in Chapter 51, section I, of the DeKalb Municipal Code, or viewed at www.cityofdekalb.com/documentcenter/view/186.
Residents also are encouraged to sign up for Alert DeKalb email or mobile notices which will send a message when snow accumulations require snow route parking.
For city streets that aren’t designated parking, if a vehicle is parked in a nonsnow route lot or space within 48 hours after the deactivation of snow routes, it could be towed to another lawful spot to make way for snow plows.
Your vehicle could be subject to tickets if it’s left in a snow route spot after the snow route period is deactivated for more than 48 hours, or if it’s left in the same spot more than 72 hours after a snowfall accumulation of 6 inches or more.
