City tows 46 vehicles, cites 29 during snow emergency

During the city-wide snow emergency this past weekend, 46 vehicles were towed and 29 citations were written, according to Mayor Richard Edwards at Monday night’s city council meeting.

“As hard as we try to get the word out, I’m not sure if people can read or try not to read the signs,” Edwards said, regarding the snow emergency signs throughout the city, which initiate a parking ban.

The difference between people receiving a parking citation or getting towed is that “someone came out before the two trucks got out there,” said Carol Doyle, dispatcher for the Bowling Green Police Division.

The parking ticket police issues is $20, Doyle said.

Municipal Administrator John Fawcett declared the snow emergency at 2 p.m. on Saturday, banning vehicles from parking on certain streets when snow exceeds two inches. The ban ended at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday.

Since Dec. 8, Public Works snow plow crews clocked in 459 hours of over time to clear the roads, costing the city roughly $16,000, said Brian Craft, director of the Public Works Department.

“It was a big weekend for city workers trying to clear the streets for residents,” Edwards said, commending Public Works for its service.
