I usually park on the street. What will happen to my car?

To best serve the City of Canton, we ask that when there is a chance for snow and ice that you limit the parking of vehicles on the road. If you have access to a driveway please use it to park your vehicles during the snow and ice event. Parking on the street greatly limits the plow driver's ability to do a thorough job clearing and treating the pavement. It reduces the lane width creating a limited and often cramped lane for our plow driver to operate within. It also defeats our goal of treating the pavement from curb to curb.

Codified Ordinances of the City of Canton

Ordinance 357.04 prohibits parking on emergency snow routes.

The parking ban is instituted when four inches or more of snow is on the streets of Canton and the Street/Sewer Department is actively involved in the removal of this snow. Designated Emergency Snow Routes are marked as such by signage. When the Mayor or Service Director declares an emergency and invokes the parking ban, such notice shall be conveyed through local radio stations. Vehicles parked on designated Emergency Snow Routes during the ban will be towed at the owner's expense. The parking ban remains in effect until the Mayor or Service Director lifts it.
