1. No person shall park, abandon, or leave unattended any vehicle on any public street, alley, or City-owned off-street parking area during snow emergency proclaimed by the Public Works Director unless the snow has been removed or plowed from said street, alley, or parking area and the snow has ceased to fall. A snow emergency parking ban shall continue from its proclamation through the duration of the snow or ice storm and the 48-hour period after cessation of such storm, except as above provided upon streets that have been fully opened.
(Code of Iowa, 321.236)

When predictions or occurrences indicate the need, the Public Works Director shall proclaim a snow emergency and inform the news media to publicize the proclamation and the parking rules thereunder. Such emergency may be extended or shortened when conditions warrant.
3. Effect of Section: This section shall not be construed as suspending parking limitations or restrictions imposed by any other section of this chapter, except that, in the event of a proclamation pursuant to this section, this section shall supersede any ordinances in conflict with this provision.
