Snow Season Prep Includes Removing Abandoned Vehicles

As part of their snow season preparations, City of Spokane officials are asking citizens to report abandoned or disabled vehicles on City streets that may impede the effectiveness of snow plowing efforts. Please call 625-4246 to report vehicles that have been left parked on the street that should be removed before the snow falls.
According to the Spokane Municipal Code, vehicles shall not be parked continuously in any one block on a public street or highway in the City of Spokane for more than 12 hours. Vehicles parked for more than 12 hours may be subject to a 24-hour notification of impoundment and then towed and vehicles with registration expired greater than 45 days may immediately be impounded.
