City Council's meeting on Tuesday night, January 9th, Ogden's Snow Removal Requirement Ordinance (10-5-21) underwent several amendments after months of discussion and community input. These changes are now in effect, aiming to enhance the efficiency of snow removal operations while keeping our community safe.
Key Changes to the Ordinance:
Street Parking Restrictions:
- No street parking is permitted during snowfall or when snow removal operations are apparent or imminent.
Exemptions for Certain Properties:
- Properties without a driveway approach are exempt.
- State roads are exempt from the street parking restrictions.
- The Mayor or designee can grant exemptions for streets with insufficient off-street parking.
- Abandoned vehicles on the street due to snow must be relocated within 48 hours or will be subject to impound.
Community cooperation is crucial. Ogden residents play a vital role in supporting these efforts by adhering to the updated guidelines. By doing so, we collectively contribute to the effectiveness of snow removal and the overall well-being of our community.
