Snow Ordinance Information

Snow Ordinance Information
Posted on 01/23/2020

When the City of Norwalk issues a snow ordinance, we take various pieces of information and make decisions about the upcoming weather situation.  Like you, we watch multiple forecasts, look at school schedules, and take into consideration the impact during your commute.  The City has a responsibility to consider other things such as fuel usage, overtime hours and salt usage.  At the end of the day, spending your tax dollars effectively while keeping you safe is our top priority. 


We realize the ordinance seems like a long time period, but we are often working inside of a large weather window.  Knowing this, it may take several passes to clean the road properly and apply treatment.  We work hard to give everyone ample notice to get home from work or school and make necessary adjustments to comply with our parking request. 


The City does not want residents to get parking tickets or have vehicles towed.  Our officers often give warnings first, but in the end the ordinance is there for everyone’s safety, and the law must be followed.
