Beacon Journal staff report
The city of Akron has issued a Snow Emergency Parking Ban for all city streets.
In a news release, city officials said that due to the threat of an additional “large accumulations” of snow, the end date and time will be determined later.
“Snow parking bans are issued for the purpose of the public’s safety and the efficiency of snow-clearing efforts on city streets,” the city said.
Such a ban means Akron authorities may tow vehicles parked on city streets if they impede the progress of snow-clearing operations. All cars should be removed from parking spots on city streets — regardless of whether city crews are still plowing main roads or have moved to the residential side streets, the city said.
