[Ord. No. 117-1964]
The Mayor or designee is hereby authorized to declare an emergency to exist when any of the streets or highways or parts thereof are covered by snow or ice which, in the Mayor's discretion, causes or will cause a condition of serious traffic congestion; said emergency is to be known as a "snow emergency."
During any snow emergency no vehicle shall be parked on any snow emergency route as shown on the traffic control map.
During any snow emergency no noncommercial passenger vehicles shall be operated on any snow emergency route without skid chains, winter-type mud or snow tires, or operative mechanical or electrical sanders and abrasive sanding material. For the purpose of this chapter, "winter-type mud and snow tires" are defined as any new, recapped, retreaded or rebuilt tires for the controlling of the wheels of motor vehicles, said tires having anti-skid patterns impressed or cut into the treaded surfaces to form bars, buttons or blocks especially designed to give effective traction on snow-, mud- or ice-covered streets.
Snow emergency routes shall be designated by appropriate signs bearing the words "Snow Emergency Route."
In the case of an actual emergency, the Mayor or a designee, through appropriate news media, is hereby authorized to announce the issuance of a snow emergency proclamation.
