[ARCHIVED] Show Low Citizens Reminded to Keep Streets Clear During Snowstorms

Everyone is asked to help keep Show Low safe when storms hit

SHOW LOW, Ariz. (January 30, 2015) – With winter weather upon us, Show Low citizens are reminded that all city roadways must be clear of vehicles and trash cans (polycarts) during active snow plowing operations. Any vehicle normally parked on a city street must be moved off the street by the time the snow falls and the plows begin operating. So, too, with polycarts, which create an additional hazard for snow plow operators because they can be difficult to see and avoid during storm conditions.

To keep everyone safe and because snow plowing equipment can operate 24 hours a day, if needed, it is imperative to keep city streets clear. Obstructions—whether they are vehicles or trash receptacles—pose a danger or may make it impossible to plow the street completely and successfully. Section 18-3-1 of the Show Low city code, adopted in 2010, states that owners of vehicles parked on the street while the snow plows are working may be cited and/or their vehicles towed (at the owner’s expense).

Let’s work together to help everyone be safe during and after snowstorms. Direct questions to Rick Austin, Public Works Department, at (928) 532-4100 for snow plowing questions or Chief of Police Joe Shelley at (928) 537-0884 for enforcement questions.
