BLACKFOOT, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK)-The city of Blackfoot is reminding residents about its snow removal and parking policies and ordinances.
First off, any snow removed from properties should not be placed into the street, gutters or other city property. The city points out that snow piled in the road usually freezes and could cause snow plow blades to deflect into traffic. It may also create slush and ultimately create dangerous ruts on the street. Snow piled around safety signs causes visibility problems and increases the potential for accidents.
Blackfoot also warns that cars or recreational vehicles left on the street can create their own set of hazards. City code prohibits overnight parking of any vehicle between 2 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. from November 15 through March 1. The ordinance will be specifically focused on the following areas.
• West Main Street on the east and Oak Street on the west
• Alice Street on the north and Sexton Street on the south
• Pacific Street west from Oak Street to Bridge Street
• Bridge Street and Judicial Street west from Oak Street
Violations could result in a fine.
