Sioux City reminds residents of updated winter parking rules; encouraging people to sign-up for CodeRED
SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - It’s getting colder, so the City of Sioux City wants to remind people of the changes in the rules when it comes to parking during a snow emergency.
When a snow emergency is declared, parking on an emergency snow route street is not allowed. These streets are designated by a blue and white sign with a snowflake.
Residents may resume parking when snow wind-rows have been removed from the street -- and snow has been removed from the parking spaces -- or the snow emergency has been lifted, whatever comes first.
“We’re hoping that this is going to make it less restrictive than it was previously. Also, we’re working with the Tyson Events Center and the Orpheum Theatre that they will put that up on their marquees when we are having a snow emergency,” said Dave Carney, the public works director
Sioux City officials are also encouraging residents to sign up for their CodeRED Emergency Alert System.
The system gives citizens critical and timely information happening throughout the community.
Events like snow emergencies, boil water warnings and water main breaks are a few examples of information people can receive through the system. People can sign up for text notifications, e-mail or home phone notifications.
“It’s not interrupting your life at all. It’s just a quick reminder that hey there’s something going on in the community and I need to know about it. It’s going to take 30 seconds to read about it and now I know that I won’t get a ticket because I’m parking in the wrong place,” said Anne Westra, Communications and Public Engagement Specialist.
