Winter Snow Event Parking Regulations

The City of Montezuma would like to remind residents to be prepared for all winter emergencies, including snow and ice storm events. This includes city parking regulations and bans until the snow has ceased to fall and the 48-hour period that follows. No person shall park, abandon or leave unattended any vehicle on any public street, alley, or City-owned off-street parking area during any snow emergency. City of Montezuma Ordinance 69.13

Sidewalk Snow Removal Reminder

For the safety and benefit of everyone, and as the winter season unfolds, the City of Montezuma would like to remind all residents of their responsibility to keep sidewalks clear. It is the responsibility of the abutting property owners to remove snow, ice or accumulations within 48 hours of any any weather related event. After that time, the City may do so on your behalf and assess the costs against the property owner for collection in the same manner as property tax. Please contact the City Offices for further clarification or if you have questions regarding this regulation. City of Montezuma Ordinance 138.03

Effective Communication

Montezuma will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in City programs, services, and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.

Modifications to Policies and Procedures

Montezuma will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all City programs, services, and activities.  For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in City offices, even where pets are generally prohibited.

Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a City program, service, or activity, should contact the City Clerk at 641-623-5617 as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.

The ADA does not require the City to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
