Old Man Winter is ready to hit us again with another wintery storm mix. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for the St. Louis area. A potential forecast of 1/4″ of ice is predicted and the Emergency Snow Route is in effect for the City of Hazelwood. For your convenience, the applicable ordinances are:
Section 397.020 Parking Prohibitions Under Certain Weather Conditions
Whenever there has been a prediction of four inches (4″) or more of snow or a quarter inch (1/4″) of ice, an emergency will be declared and the snow route procedure will be enforced when the snow begins to fall.
While the snow emergency is in effect, no person shall park, or allow remained parked, any vehicle on any portion of a snow emergency route to which the emergency applies. However, nothing in this Section shall be construed to permit parking at any time or place where it is forbidden by any other provisions of law.
On each street designated as a Snow Emergency Route, special blue and white signs are posted. Please consider staying home during this weather emergency. If staying home isn’t an option, take your time and arrive alive.
