WINTER PARKING ORDINANCE
While Richfield doesn't have snow emergencies, the City does have a policy for street parking after a snowfall of two or more inches.
The City prohibits parking of vehicles on City streets after a snowfall of two inches or more. Parking is prohibited until the streets have been plowed from curb to curb. Vehicles in violation of the ordinance are subject to being ticketed and towed. Ordinance is in effect from November 1 to April 15.
If your car is towed please call Chiefs Towing at 952-888-2201
PLACEMENT OF TRASH CANS AND RECYCLING CANS
It is illegal to place your trash or recycling can in the street, alley, or on the sidewalk. The cans interfere with plowing, sweeping, and become a hazard to pedestrians and traffic. Please keep your trash cans behind the curb and off of the street and sidewalk!
Richfield's snowplow crews try to clear the streets as quickly as possible after a snowfall so that driving is safer and easier for everyone. High volume "minor arterial roads" are plowed first, then neighborhood "collector" streets. The City also plows City-owned sidewalks and parking lots.
