No Parking on Roads during Storms

With any luck Club members have seen their last winter storm for the season, but maybe not. In case the snow (or ice) returns anew, members are reminded not to park cars on roadways until roads are cleared, sanded and salted. This is particularly important this winter. With all of the snow that has fallen it is increasingly difficult to clear roads fully. The problem is only worsened when vehicles are parked on the side of our already narrow roads during inclement weather. In some cases plows just can’t get through. Other times they are significantly slowed.

Vernon Township Ordinance #99-12 entitled Snow and Other Emergencies provides for the removal of any parked, unoccupied vehicle until after the snow/ice has ceased and until all streets are plowed/sanded sufficiently so parking does not interfere with the flow of traffic. The ordinance provides that the owner shall pay the reasonable costs of the removal and storage which may result from such removal before regaining possession of the vehicle.

Consider yourself warned: The Club may exercise its right to have the Vernon Police tow vehicles that are parked on Club roads during a storm event. To read Rule No. 16 in its entirety go to page 4 of the March 1, 2014 edition of the Newsette.
