      DESIGNATED PARKING AREA. The part of the roadway that is set aside and marked with white parking stripe or yellow parking stripe for parking.

      SNOW PLOWING ALERT. Such times as there is a snow accumulation on the public street of any amount such that the Street Superintendent or his or her designee declares that snow removal operations on the public streets will commence and that the provisions of this section in regard to parking on public streets during snow removal operations are effective and will be enforced.

      STREET. The entire width of any public roadway excluding any designated parking area within the city, and it shall not be limited to those roadways designated as a street but shall include all other names by which public roadways are designated.

   (B)   Declaration of snow plowing alert. When the Street Superintendent or his or her designee determines that snow removal for the public streets will commence, that person will announce through local news media and whatever other sources are available that there has been declared a snow removal alert and that the provisions of this section will be effective and be enforced. The determination to declare a snow removal alert will be based on the then existing weather conditions, and the amount of snow then on the ground or expected according to forecasts from the National Weather Service.

   (C)   Parking during snow plowing alert. Parking on any public street in the city will be completely prohibited, on both sides and regardless of the directional run of that street, during the existence of a snow plowing alert.

   (D)   Termination of snow plow alert. After a snow removal alert has been declared, there will be no declaration of its termination, but the alert shall terminate and the provisions of the section become not effective nor enforceable as to any particular street or portion of a street, as soon as that street or portion thereof has been plowed and cleared of snow accumulation, curb-to-curb, and the snow removal equipment is no longer in operation in the area, after which normal parking may be resumed until the next declared snow plow alert.
