IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK)-Since the recent snowstorm dumped moe than two inches of snow on Idaho Falls, it officially qualifies as a "snow event".
What that means, according to the city's "Snow and Ice Control Policies and Procedures Manual" is a snow removal effort.
Parking restrictions are now in place and vehicles should be moved off of all city streets to allow room for plows.
Any vehicles parked on the streets after a snow event will be subject to ticketing and towing in accordance with the parking restrictions.
City officials say moving vehicles off the street is the most helpful thing a community member can do to facilitate snow removal. Some narrow steets may not be plowed at all if equipment cannot safely drive down them.
