FLINT, Mich. (WNEM) - The city of Flint is asking residents to refrain from parking on public streets on Friday and Saturday so that crews can remove snow and ice in preparedness for the upcoming winter storm.

The city of Flint declared a snow emergency effective from 7:45 p.m. on Friday, March 3 through 4 a.m. on Saturday, March 4.

During the snow emergency, the city cautions residents against traveling until the emergency has been lifted.

Residents are also asked not to park on the street so that crews can quickly remove snow from the roadways. Some consequences for parking vehicles on public streets during a snow emergency may include ticketing and removal at the owner’s expense.

Flint’s Street Maintenance team is ready and prepared to clear the roads of snow and ice.

Major routes are the first priority. The second priority routes include dangerous hills, curves, and intersections, schools, and hospitals. The third priority is major roadways and the fourth is local roads.

Subdivision roads are cleared after priority roads are passable.

The city of Flint is responsible for salting and plowing streets within city limits, while Genesee County is responsible for maintaining highways and interstates, including I-75, I-69, and I-475.

You can find Flint’s Snow and Ice Removal Plan on their website.
