City reminds residents of snow removal policy

In preparation the area's next snowstorm, Sandpoint's community resource officers are tagging and towing cars that violate the city's snow removal policy.

"While winter can be one of the most beautiful times of the year, it can also be one of the most infuriating times," city officials said in a post to their Facebook page. "From driving on icy roads to clearing your car off every morning."

Winter in North Idaho brings snowfall, which can cause many issues for some residents, officials said in the post.

Among the common problems that city crews see is residents or businesses not clearing snow from their sidewalks and/or their vehicles parked on city streets.

Another is not parking vehicles according to the city's snow removal policy.

During the winter months, residents are asked to park vehicles on the even side of the streets. After plows have removed snow from the odd side of the street, residents are asked move their vehicles to the cleared side of the street until the even side has been plowed. After snow removal is complete, residents should park the vehicle back on the even side of the street.
