City of Saginaw MI -
resident parking cars on street during snow events creating issues with snow removal and waste collection
The Public Works Dept wants to ask residents within the City that if at all possible during and immediately following heavy snow events if they could keep their cars off the streets and parked in the driveway. During the most recent snow event that there were many vehicles parked in the street while they were attempting to provide snow removal. In fact many of the owners are parking their vehicles directly in front of their driveway's to block the plow trucks from having snow from the roadway pile in front of their driveways so that they don't have to remove by themselves later. This causes some safety issues for the drivers to be weaving in and around vehicles to avoid parked cars, could possible keep Waste management from collecting trash and recycling due to impassable roadways and area along curb not plowed, and forces the City to have to come back later and plow when they may be able to. They understand that many of the owners are parking on the street in accordance with the ordinances and legally, however it does keep the City from being able to clear the entire roadways. Also keep in mind that depending on the type and amount of snow it may be between 24-78 hours from end of snow fall until they can clear all locals per our Snow plowing policy.
