Snow and ice removal operations in effect

Because of Friday’s snow storm, Fort Dodge residents are reminded that a parking prohibition has automatically gone into effect on all residential emergency snow routes because there has been an accumulation of two inches or more of snow.

The parking prohibition will be in effect until 24 hours after the snow stops falling.

To view a map of all emergency snow routes, please visit the city’s webpage at

For those people not on snow routes, please park your car off the street if possible as it will be easier to plow all streets. You may park across a sidewalk or on the parking right-of-way until the snow has been cleared. Residents are encouraged to use caution when driving.
