New Snow Removal Rules in Moorhead

Posted: Updated:

The City of Moorhead has new snow removal district this year, and a new system when an emergency is declared.  The new district is around the Concordia and MSUM campuses.

The city will order a snow removal declaration after significant snow falls. Once a declaration is made, special parking rules take affect to allow crews to clear major roads.

On the first day of a snow removal declaration, the decision will be announced by 2:00 p.m., and regular and overnight parking rules remain in effect.

On day two, no parking is allowed on the even sides of the street between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. North and east sides of the street have even house numbers.

On day three, no parking is allow on the odd sides of the street. South and west sides of the street have odd house numbers.

Vehicles parked on the wrong side of the road during a snow removal declaration will be towed at the owners expense, so the catch is to make sure you know when a snow removal day is declared, so you know where to park on which day.

You can check the city website to see if a declaration has been made at cityofmoorhead.com/snowdistrict, or call the Moorhead Police Department at 218-299-5120. After business hours, contact the Red River Dispatch at 701-451-7660.

You can also sign up for updates via e-mail, Facebook or Twitter with the City of Moorhead.
