Welcome to the City Of Zion

Public Works Department

Snow Removal

Accumulated ice and snow is removed from pavements with high traffic volumes
as expeditiously as practicable during and after a storm. It is anticipated the Public Works Department will complete plowing and salting operations in 7 to 9 hours on
all streets and cul-de-sacs in the City. Streets with low traffic volumes, cul-de-sacs and business district sidewalks shall be cleared as soon as is economically and operationally practical to provide reasonable service. Alleys are cleared only after
the streets are opened.

Parking Ordinance

No parking is allowed on city streets when 2 or more inches of snow is forecast
(or between the hours of 2:00 A.M. and 6:00 a.m. year round). Your cooperation
will allow the snowplows to clear the streets better and faster. It is unlawful to
park any vehicle on any public street when there is 4 inches or more of snow has fallen. Any motor vehicles parked in violation shall receive a ticket, and may be
towed away. The owner of the vehicle shall pay towing fees charged for the
towing service before the vehicle is released.

Depositing Public Ways

Remember, it is unlawful to shovel, dump, snowblow, plow, or otherwise place
snow in any public street, highway or alley right-of-way.


By ordinance, but more importantly as a common courtesy to others, snow should never be shoveled, dumped, snowblowed, or plowed into the street or onto the
public sidewalk.
