Fairway puts snow parking regulations in effect
Here we go again…
In anticipation of…God it pains me to type this…significant snow accumulation Saturday and Sunday, Fairway has instituted its snowstorm parking regulations:
The National Weather Service is advising of a major winter storm to hit the Kansas City Metro area beginning Saturday evening March 23, 2013 through late Sunday afternoon March 24, 2013. Based on the weather forecast, the anticipated beginning time of the snow storm, and the need to be ready should conditions change; the City of Fairway will declare a Traffic Emergency under Section 14-217 of the City Code from 4:00 p.m., Saturday March 23, 2013 until 11:45 p.m. Sunday March 24, 2013. All vehicles parked on a City Street must be removed within two (2) hours after the declaration of an emergency or be considered in violation. The intent of this Ordinance is to have vehicles that may cause safety issues or traffic congestion during snow removal operations off the streets until such time the Traffic
Emergency is terminated. If a vehicle is found to be in violation as a safety hazard and is impeding snow removal operations it may have to be towed at the owner’s expense. Snowfall totals are expected to be in the 6-10 inch range; trees already damaged and weakened from the last major winter storm will be of great concern to Public Works Crews and Emergency Responders as they could further hinder snow removal should they fall onto roadways
The priority of the Public Works Department will be to keep every city maintained street accessible to emergency vehicles. As with the previous storm they will focus their resources during the most intense snowfall to keeping main roads open, then secondary and finally residential. When snowfall rates allow Public Works will plow out curb to curb and clean intersections. If you are involved in a non-injury accident and your car is drivable the Police Department may direct you to exchange information with the other parties involved and file a walk in report at a later time.
