Hiawatha Snow Emergency Reminder
Hiawatha's snow ordinance will be in effect when the National Weather Service (NWS) predicts a snowfall in which three (3) or more inches are expected. While the Snow Emergency is in effect, there is no parking on any city street. Vehicles found parked in violation of this ordinance will receive a $25 parking ticket and/or be impounded.
During overnight snow removal operations, vehicles found in violation on City streets will be towed.
The Snow Emergency declaration will be given to all the local media including but not limited to: KGAN (Channel 2), KCRG (Channel 9), and KWWL (Channel 7). The declaration will also be posted on the City website, www.hiawatha-iowa.com. Your cooperation is appreciated.
REMEMBER - Don't park in the street if:
The 24 hour (or less) prediction by the NWS is for three (3) or more inches of snow.
Three (3) or more inches of snow has fallen and/or your street has not been cleared.
Also, the City will NOT generally conduct snowfall clearing operations for a snowfall of less than two (2) inches. This policy remains unchanged from prior years.
Please remember: Sidewalks must be shoveled within 24 hours of the cessation of snow fall, clear snow from around fire hydrants that are near your property, check with your neighbors regarding snow removal and direct sump pumps and downspouts away from hard surfaces so that water doesn't build up and freeze, creating slippery conditions on driveways, sidewalks, or streets.
For the current road conditions: call 511 or log onto the Iowa DOT winter road conditions web page. www.iowadot.gov.
NORTH CENTER POINT ROAD PROJECT UPDATE
The new railroad crossing and signal arms are complete on the North Center Point Road Railroad Crossing Project. All new street paving is complete and the two center traffic lanes have been opened to traffic. This will allow the contractor to continue working on other construction items as long as winter weather allows. The priority items are to install the street lighting and complete the recreational trail construction. This should be completed in the next two weeks and then all four lanes can be opened to traffic with final grading, landscaping, and seeding and sodding completed next spring.
If you have any questions, please contact City Hall at 319-393-1515.
Thank you for your cooperation.
