by City Hall 11/11/2019
Winter has arrived.  Please be sure that you are aware what your responsibilities are as a resident or business owner regarding snowfall and ice accumulations. The City of Polk City has a convenient checklist to make sure you are always compliant with Polk City's weather codes.  A snow ordinance is in effect any time there is one inch (1”) accumulation of snow or any accumulation of ice.  Therefore, no person shall park, abandon or leave unattended any vehicle on any public street during such times of any snow fall or ice accumulation or for a period of twenty-four hours (24) after the termination of any snow fall or ice accumulation.  The checklist reminds residents and business owners that when snowfall accumulates to 1 inch or greater, or during any ice storm, it is your responsibility to: Ensure all vehicles are moved off of any roadway Remove any obstructions from the right-of-way Within 24 hours after the end of 1 inch or greater snowfall, or any ice storm, ensure that you have: Cleared sidewalks of snow and ice Cluster mailbox is clear of snow and ice Recommended: Fire hydrant has a 3 foot perimeter & road access clear of snow to help reduce the Fire Department's response time.   Please download or print out the full PDF checklist for more detailed information, reminders, and pertinent winter weather city codes.
