Clarinda Police Chief reminds residents about snow ordinance


February 20th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Clarinda Police Chief Keith Brothers, Wednesday, issued a reminder to residents of the community about the City’s Snow Ordinance. Brothers says with significant snowfall appearing likely with each passing hour Thursday, residents need to be prepared to move their vehicles and other objects off of City streets that may obstruct the process of snow removal by City crews.

The snow ordinance in Clarinda states that when snow has accumulated two-inches or more, vehicles must be moved off City streets until the snow stops and the street has been cleared. Any vehicle left parked on a street in violation of the ordinance is subject to being impounded, and the registered owner fined $15.00 plus towing and storage costs.

Persons with questions about the ordinance may call the Clarinda P-D at 712-542-2194.
