North Logan decides snow law would be unenforceable

NORTH LOGAN – City Council members Wednesday turned down a proposed ordinance that would have prohibited people from moving snow onto the streets, and finalized an ordinance that defines who can live in a single-family dwelling and puts restrictions on RV parks. The council debated awhile about whether or not they should make a new ordinance to prohibit persons from shoveling their snow into the streets. “It is a danger to the snowplowers because that pile of snow will harden and can cause damage to the plows,” said Chief Kim Hawkes of North Park Police Department. The council proceeded to discuss how they would measure what would be too much snow on the streets, how they would cite people and what kind of a citation it would be. After a lengthy discussion, the council didn’t come up with an answer to any of those questions. “I just don’t know how you would enforce it,” Councilwoman Nancy Potter said.
