In an effort to provide Barnesville residents with the ability to easily travel on city streets during the winter, the city has established the following parking restrictions.
After a snowfall of approximately two inches, or more, vehicles parked on any city street or avenue, that is not otherwide posted, must be removed prior to 8:00 a.m. on the day following the day that street or avenue is first plowed. Vehicles may not be returned until after such street or avenue has been plowed and widened to its full width. At that time, the restrictions imposed by this ordinance shall cease until the next snowfall. In addition, it is unlawful for any resident to push, blow, or otherwise place snow from any portion of their property onto city streets or avenues.
During other times of the year, the Chief of Police or the Street Superintendent may direct that notices be placed on vehicles parked on any particular street or avenue or that the entire street or avenue be posted with notice requiring that all parked vehicles be removed from all portions of such street or avenue as needed, from time to time, for street cleaning, street maintenance, or any other purpose on a temporary basis.
Violation of this ordinance shall be considered a petty misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $100.00. Additionally, vehicles violating this ordinance may be impounded and will be released to the owner only upon payment of the towing charges, daily impound fees of $10.00 per day, the petty misdemeanor fine, and any other costs relating to the towing and impound of the vehicle.
