Snow Emergencies

If a snow emergency is declared by City of Mt. Pleasant staff, on-street parking will NOT be permitted.

During a snow emergency, failure to remove vehicles from the street will result in a ticket. Towing may be utilized if ticketing has proven ineffective and/or the vehicles parked on the street cause a delay in snow removal.

Notice of when a snow emergency is declared, and later lifted, will be provided through the city’s social media channels, blog, community information phone line (989-779-5320), local media notification, and an email alert.
