AKRON, OH (WOIO) - The City of Akron has issued a Snow Emergency Parking Ban for ALL CITY STREETS effective at 4:00 p.m. today, Tuesday, January 27, 2015.

The ban is in effect until further notice. Snow parking bans are issued for the purpose of the public's safety and the efficiency of snow clearing efforts on city streets. Particularly, with weather reports predicting snow and ice on Thursday, City plows are now moving to residential streets for clearing.

A Snow Emergency Parking Ban means the City has the power to tow cars parked on city residential streets if they impede the progress of snow clearing operations. All cars should be removed from parking spots on city streets regardless of whether city crews are still plowing main roads or have moved to the residential side streets. Cars not moved may be towed by the City.
