JACKSON, Mo. (KBSI) – City officials in Jackson issued a Snow Route Proclamation Tuesday afternoon in anticipation of this week’s winter weather event.

Residents who have vehicles parked on designated snow routes in Jackson have 12 hours to move those vehicles off the street or to a nondesignated snow route to allow city crews to plow the entire width of the roadway.

After 3 a.m. on Wednesday, January, 25, vehicles that are not moved may be ticketed or towed to allow for plowing.

This Snow Event Proclamation will end when the storm is over, the street has been cleared, and the city has notified the local media outlets that the proclamation has concluded.

Vehicles parked in the uptown historic district do not need to be moved during Snow Event Proclamations.

In accordance with the ordinance, the parking of any motor vehicle, motorcycle, trailer, or other conveyance or object is prohibited on the following snow route streets within the city limits when a Snow Removal Proclamation is in effect.
