The City of St. James may declare a snow emergency after an accumulation of three (3") inches or more of snowfall. During a snow emergency, no vehicle may park on any city street until the street has been completely cleared / plowed from curb to curb.
Any vehicle parked in violation of this parking restriction will be issued a $125 ticket for the first offense and a $150 ticket for subsequent offenses during the same snowfall. Vehicles found in violation will also be towed at the owners' expense.
Please do not push or move snow from your property to the public streets. Sidewalks must be cleared of snow within 12 hours after the end of snowfall.
