Iona’s Public Works Department is determined to provide residents with outstanding snow removal to keep the roads safe during the winter season. However, this can only be achieved through a true partnership between RESIDENTS and the CITY.
What Residents can do to Help:
- Park all vehicles, trailers, and boats off of the streets. Ridges of snow around vehicles can parked on streets will freeze and can prevent or slow down future snow removal. It could also potentially cause accidents when a vehicles hits them. Iona City Code restricts the parking of any vehicles in the street right-of-way commencing on Thanksgiving Day to and until Easter Sunday of the following year. This city code helps to assist our Public Works Department in keeping the streets plowed during the winter months. Any vehicle parked or stored in violation may be removed by or under the direction of the City’s Police Department and may be impounded.
- Clear your sidewalks as soon as possible. In accordance with Title 6, Chapter 4, and Section 8B owners, renters, and persons in charge of real property are reminded that all snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks within 24 hours after any precipitation event. It is unlawful to place snow or ice removed from private property upon any public sidewalk, street, easement, right-of-way, or alleyway. The following persons shall be exempt: (1) a person who is physically or mentally impaired in such a manner that they are unable, (2) a pregnant person, (3) a person who is eighty (80) years of age, and a lessee who occupies a multi-dwelling unit owned by another person or entity and who is not an agent of the owner or a lessee having a legal and/or contractual duty to remove hail, snow, sleet, and/or ice from the sidewalk.
Your efforts will help our city employees be more efficient during snow removal and make this a safe winter season!
