Snow Emergency Reminder

Parking is prohibited on all public streets, highways and alleys after a snowfall of 2 or more inches.. Move your vehicles off the street when snow starts piling up and plows can do more efficient work. Call 763-531-1275 for a recorded message stating the SNOW Emergency STATUS for the City. All property owners are required to keep the boulevard walkways reasonably clear of snow and ice (Here's the policy). Help out the Fire Department and maintenance personnel by shoveling around fire hydrants immediately after a snowfall. 

When snow starts piling up, reminders are posted on the city Facebook page and on the website. Sign up for city weekly news on the enews page
