The snow emergency declared by the Mayor last week for the City of Cherokee has been lifted.
City Administrator Don Eikmeier said Tuesday that the snow emergency and no parking ban on City streets has been lifted and citizens can now park on the streets where legal because the snow has been removed and the streeets widened and cleared.
The City advises motorists to continue to use extreme caution at intersections because high snow piles have restricted vision. Motorists should slow down and proceed from stop signs very carefully. Many intersections also remain very slick due to the snow and ice pack and cold temperatures preventing the road salt from activating.
Residents also are asked to shovel around their doors, mail boxes and newspaper drop boxes so carriers can access the residences. Clearing fire hydrants of snow is also recommended.
Blowing or pushing snow into the streets is prohibited.
