Snow is forecast to taper off in the morning. When it is safe to do so, residents are urged to be good "snow buddies" and shovel their sidewalks. Not only is it the neighborly thing to do, it's a civic and legal responsibility under City Ordinance 24-12. www.gocolumbiamo.com/PublicWorks/Streets/SidewalkSnowremoval.php
Important safety tips are available at:
There is no parking on first and second priority snow routes when snow accumulates 2 inches or more. Vehicles must be moved off of the street; vehicles that are not moved are subject to citation and towing at the owner's expense. Citizens are urged to stay off the roadways. Vehicles blocking lanes will be towed at the owner's expense. If you become stuck and call for a tow truck, please ask for a price up-front. If you feel you are being gouged, please call the Missouri Attorney General's hotline at 1-800-392-8222. For up-to-date snow information, visit comosnow.com.
