Ada, MN — The City of Ada got a light coating of snow to cover the city streets on Monday morning. It was enough to makes road slippery, but not nearly enough to bust out the plows. However, we all know that in Minnesota that several inches of snow are certainly possible at any point and Ada Police Chief Jody Bueng wants Ada residents to remember the winter parking rules. The winter parking period technically began November 15th, but Bueng says they don’t really take effect until the first major snow event.

Ada Public Works crews don’t usually start plowing until there is 3 or more inches of snow on the ground, but conditions such as drifting are taken into consideration. Public Works Director Brian Rasmussen says their typical day or night of snow removal begins with the emergency routes followed by the residential neighborhoods.

The City of Ada will post on their Facebook page and alert KRJB when if a snow emergency is declared and when plows intend to be out. Winter parking stay in effect until March 15th.
