Snow Removal

The City of Ammon generally adopts and actively enforces a ‘Snow Proclamation’ by City Council Resolution each winter. The Proclamation generally goes into effect on December 15th and remains in effect until March 15th. The snow proclamation is intended to enable city crews to plow roads in an efficient manner by prohibiting parking on the street between the hours of 11PM and 7AM. Residents will want to review the details by downloading and reviewing the most recent Proclamation.

Residents are also reminded that it is a violation of City ordinance to plow snow from their properties and sidewalks into the City streets
