Every effort is made to plow the streets as quickly as possible. Please exercise patience as main roads are cleared first followed by the subdivisions.

WINTER PARKING ON CITY STREETS
As a reminder to assist in keeping our roads clear of snow so we can all get around the city safer and easier, please keep these ordinances in mind. Riverdale City Ordinance 6-4-4 reads, "when snow removal becomes necessary, no person who owns or has possession, custody or control of any vehicle or other object shall park or place such vehicle, or object upon or immediately adjacent to any street travel way until the street is cleared." We make every reasonable attempt to try and gain compliance with removing vehicles, trailers and other objects from the city streets without issuing citations, or impounding vehicles. However, if we cannot find the owner or other responsible person to move the vehicle to facilitate snow removal you may be subject to a citation and impoundment of the vehicle, or object.
Also, 6-4-5 states that it is unlawful to park, or leave standing on the street any unattached trailer, boat, camper, motor home etc. unless it is being loaded for departure and can only be left for loading for a period not to exceed 72 hours.
Please help us now with removing anything from the streets that should not be there and help us by not parking vehicles on the street during a snowstorm, or immediately following a snowstorm until the roads are cleared.
Additional snow removal reminders:
- It is required by city ordinance that home owners, renters and businesses clear sidewalks in front of their property after each snowstorm. Doing so will allow for safer passage of those using the sidewalk.
- Please blow or shovel the snow back onto your property, not into the street.
- Please clear the snow from in front of your mailbox to allow for mail delivery.
- Make sure that if there is a fire hydrant in front of your property that it is not covered by snow and can be easily spotted in case of emergency.
