Editor's Note: Ord. No. 2011-11-22-01 § 2, adopted November 22, 2011, repealed section 355.100 "on-street parking along snow routes" which formerly derived from Ord. No. 2008-05-27-04 § 1, 5-27-2008. This Section was left reserved for the city's future use.
[Ord. No. 2013-01-22-05 § 1, 1-22-2013]
A. 
Findings. The Board of Aldermen hereby finds that:
1. 
One of the services provided by the City's Department of Public Works is to remove snow and ice from City streets.
2. 
The City's snow removal efforts can be hampered if snow from private property is deposited on City streets, because it can result in multiple trips to certain areas, increased chemical costs and ultimately prolonging snow removal.
3. 
The City's snow removal efforts can also be hampered if persons other than City personnel or its authorized contractors undertake to plow City streets because of lack of coordination, redundancy in efforts, disputes regarding any property damage responsibility, and the public's general perception that any City street snow plowing being conducted is done so under the auspices of the City, and thus will hold the City accountable for any performance deficiencies, regardless of whether it was City personnel or its authorized contractors.
4. 
It is in the best interest of the City to enact a section regulating depositing and removing of snow and ice on City streets.
B. 
It shall be unlawful for any person to plow, shovel, or otherwise remove snow from private property by motor vehicle or other apparatus such as a truck, backhoe, excavator or grader equipped with a snow plow or other device designed to plow or remove snow or ice and to deposit the removed snow or ice on that portion of a public right-of-way which is paved and used or designed for use by motor vehicles.
C. 
It shall be unlawful to remove or plow snow or ice from a City street without approval of the Board of Aldermen, provided, however, that this provision shall not apply to or limit the City's snowplowing operations.
