Police encourage residents to move cars ahead of snowstorm
The Fairfield Police Department has issued a press release to ask the town’s residents to move their vehicles from city streets in light of the upcoming snowstorm.
The National Weather Service predicts Fairfield will receive 4 inches of snow Thursday and another 3 inches Thursday night and Friday morning.
Fairfield Police Chief Julie Harvey said the police received many complaints about the large number of tickets issued after the last large snowfall a few weeks ago.
The police are trying to prevent as many tickets as possible by informing residents ahead of time they will strictly enforce the parking ordinance.
The parking ordinance states vehicles parked on city streets must be moved every 24 hours. Harvey said residents should plan on moving their vehicles either off the streets or to an already plowed street within 24 hours of the start of snowfall.
If a resident does not have a driveway or garage, Harvey suggested moving the vehicle to a municipal parking lot.
More information about parking regulations and city ordinances can be found on the city’s website at cityoffairfieldiowa.com.
