The following is the new snow removal ordinance for the City of Chariton that was approved at the Chariton City Council’s March 18, 2019, meeting and is in effect for this winter. The ordinance reads as follows:
(a) “Between the hours of 6 p.m. and 7 a.m., no person shall park, abandon or leave unattended any vehicle on any public street, alley or parking areas in the public right-of-way of a street during any snow emergency parking ban unless the snow has been removed or plowed from the street, alley or parking areas in the public right-of-way and immediately adjacent to the traveled portion of a street and the snow has ceased to fall. A snow emergency parking ban shall begin when the National Weather Service predicts that one or more inches of snow or ice will fall in the Chariton area or one of more inches of snow or ice has fallen in the Chariton area, and shall continue through the duration of the snow or ice storm and the 48-hour period after cessation of the storm, except as above provided upon streets which have been fully opened.”
