The Public Service Department is responsible for providing snow and ice control for the city streets and the cities designated snow routes.
Each year the Marion City Council approves the Snow and Ice Control Program that outlines the polices and procedures for city snow removal operations for the Public Services Department. The Snow and Ice Control Program outlines the level of service and expectations for winter maintenance operations. In addition, the classification of streets, designated snow routes, and prioritization of streets for snow removal is defined within the Snow and Ice Program.
During significant weather events, parking restrictions on city streets can be implemented on emergency snow routes and city streets in effort to minimize hazards associated with snow removal operations.
Parking restrictions associated with winter weather events will be displayed on the City’s website and local media sources.
A Snow Route Parking Ban is a parking restriction placed on all designed emergency snow routes.
A Winter Storm Emergency is a parking restriction placed on all city streets. Winter Storm Emergencies are declared during significant winter weather events.
