Snow emergency guidelines

The City of Farmington typically declares a snow emergency when the weather forecast indicates six or more inches of snow expected. The decision to declare a snow emergency is made among the Director of Public Safety, Public Works Superintendent and the City Manager.
Once a snow emergency has been declared, Public Safety will notify the media and send out an electronic message via Nixle. All vehicles must be removed from roadways within 12 hours so the streets can be plowed from curb to curb.
Public Safety is responsible for making sure all vehicles are removed from the roadway and will make an effort to notify the owners of vehicles that are still parked in the roadway before impounding them. The owner of the vehicle will be responsible for the towing fee associated with the vehicle impound.
The snow emergency is used to ensure that all the roadways in the city are plowed to allow prompt emergency responses to residents living in the neighborhoods.
