The city of Kent has announced a snow emergency parking ban beginning at 11 a.m. today.
The parking ban is being put into effect to allow city crews to clear snow and ice from city streets, and will remain in effect until further notice.
An updated notice will be issued to inform the public on the status of this parking ban and when the ban is lifted.
During a snow emergency, parking on all city streets is banned to provide for snow and ice removal. A snow emergency exists during any 24-hour period when two or more inches of snow accumulates.
This winter season, residents and business are reminded to clear public sidewalks of snow and ice abutting their properties.
