The City of Wheaton wishes to remind residents that in the event of a Snow Alert/Emergency, it will be unlawful to leave any vehicle, trailer, camper or any other device parked on any city street or alley.
Snow Alerts will be announced on Morris radio stations KKOK and KMRS, posted on City Public Access Channel 8, and on our Facebook page.
The announcement will advise residents of Snow Alert times. Parking on the street will be prohibited during these times.
Vehicles found in violation will be towed and impounded at the owner's expense.
Vehicles will not be released until all towing and impound fees are paid.
In the event of a snowfall that requires plowing, please tune to the radio; the City will enforce these regulations without exception.
