Clarinda Police Chief Keith Brothers says “It appears the unseasonably mild weather is coming to an end as winter weather approaches and a winter weather advisory goes into effect.” Bothers asks residents to help out the snow plow operators, by following the city’s parking ban, which states:

“No person shall park any motor vehicle or other apparatus upon any street of the city that will obstruct the removal of snow when there has been an accumulation of two (2) inches or more. Any vehicle left parked on any street in violation of this ordinance may be impounded, and the registered owner of the vehicle will be subject to a $15.00 parking fine, and payment of all applicable towing and storage fees in order for the vehicle to be released.”

The parking ban remains in effect until the snow ceases to fall and the streets have been plowed from curb to curb.
