The Marshalltown Police Department wants to remind the public that the snow ordinance is now in effect. All residents who live along the designated snow routes are asked to please move their vehicle to assist the Public Works Department in snow clearing operations.
The MPD will be assisting the Public Works Department with towing and removing vehicles that are parked on the snow routes.
The MPD also wants to remind the public to please drive safely if you must travel as snow is expected to continue until later today. Winds are expected to increase as the day goes on that will cause blowing and drifting snow making travel hazardous.
