Hey everybody! Well the snow has stopped and the sidewalk is cleared so I thought I would take a moment to send you the following update from Public Works.
Crews transitioned snow removal efforts to residential roads early this morning. Please park off-street on residential roads today, Sunday, January 13, when you are able. Parking off-street helps crews to clear roads more safely and efficiently, especially on narrow roadways.
Due to the volume of snow received, roughly six inches, a 2nd Snow Emergency specific to the Downtown and Hilltop will go into effect at 10pm, Monday, January 14 to allow for snow removal and hauling from the area. This 2nd Snow Emergency will be in effect through 6am, Tuesday, January 15. The area affected can be viewed at http://cityofdavenportiowa.com/cms/One.aspx?portalId=6481456&pageId=11893760. As an alternative to on-street parking, residents and visitors to the area may park for free in the city’s ramps beginning 5pm, Monday, January 14 through 7am, Tuesday January 15 for this 2nd Snow Emergency.
For pedestrian safety, residents should begin the process of removing snow from their sidewalks. When shoveling snow, remember to take it slow and to take breaks, push the snow, and stay hydrated. If you are able, consider helping to remove snow from neighboring sidewalks where the individual may be less able or away.
