Waukee’s snow ordinance goes into effect when more than an inch of snow is forecast. Parking on all Waukee streets is prohibited while the ordinance is in effect. Vehicles remaining on City streets are subject to $25 fines and/or towing.
It is also unlawful to place, throw or push snow onto City streets from private property. Property owners are responsible for clearing snow from all sidewalks adjacent to private property. Sidewalks must be cleared within 24 hours after a snowfall.
If snow covers a fire hydrant, please clear the snow around the hydrant. This will save precious time for firefighters in the event of a nearby fire.
Please watch the City of Waukee’s Facebook page, Twitter feed and website for snow notifications. The City also offers an alert system called Nixle which provides emergency alerts and community notices, including snow ordinance notifications. Signing up for the service is free and easy.
