Snow route parking policy
Jon Quinn (TheLorian)
Winter is here, which means reinstating the City of Dubuque’s odd/even snow route parking policy. A relatively large snow storm with at least three inches of accumulation dictates when this policy becomes effective in an effort to clear the snow from the roads. Parking on the wrong side of the street while this policy is in effect can cost car owners a ticket and violators a 30 dollar fine.
The snow route parking policy is as follows. If the present date falls on an odd number of the calendar, then cars should be parked on the odd-numbered addresses side of the road. If the date falls on an even number of the calendar, then cars should be parked on the even-numbered addresses side of the road.
This is important information for any student who owns a car and lives at a residence life house. The snow route parking policy does directly impact the street parking surrounding campus. If a student is ticketed or fined, the citation will have to be handled with the City of Dubuque and not Loras College.
