Whenever the mayor, or his or her designated representative, shall find, on the basis of accumulated snow, falling snow, sleet, freezing rain, or on the basis of an official forecast by the U.S. Weather Bureau, of snow, sleet, or freezing rain, or by other weather conditions such as tornado or violent electrical storms, that conditions make it necessary that parking on local and residential streets, be prohibited or restricted for snow plowing and/or other purposes, he or she may put into effect a parking prohibition on parts of, or on all, local and residential streets, by declaring that parking be prohibited on one side of the local and residential streets, designating either the odd or even address numbered side, at his or her discretion; and, by declaring that parking be prohibited within the turnaround area or circular area of a cul-de-sac. In such declaration, the mayor or his or her designated representative shall state the date and time on which such parking prohibition shall take effect. The prohibition shall remain in effect until terminated by announcement of the mayor or his or her designated representative, who may then declare that there shall be in effect a parking prohibition on the opposite side of those local and residential streets designated above, which prohibition shall remain in effect until terminated by announcement of the mayor or his or her designated representative.
While the prohibition is in effect, it shall be unlawful for any person to park, or allow to remain parked, any vehicle on any side of a street whereon parking is prohibited.
Any parking prohibition put into effect related to snow and ice conditions shall remain in effect until terminated as set forth in this section except that any street area that has become substantially clear of snow and ice for the length of the entire block shall be automatically excluded from such prohibition.
