BRR!!!

When temperatures plummet, the risk of pipes freezing increases. You can help prevent this nightmare by running a small TRICKLE of water from a faucet. With this weekends predicted temperatures, it would be a great idea to start this. It is much cheaper to run water than it is to call a plumber.
Stay warm everyone!

JASPER SNOW POLICY:

JASPER SNOW POLICY:

It happens every year, it snows and there are still vehicles on the street. It really shouldn’t matter if you are new to town or if you’ve lived here for years-you want the streets cleared of snow! The only way the Public Works Department can do a good job is if ALL THE VEHICLES ARE OFF THE STREET! Please do NOT leave a vehicle on the street if you leave town during the wintertime. After a SNOW EMERGENCY (snow 2” or more) has been declared, it is illegal to park on any street until the street has been completely cleared curb to curb for a length of a city block. “The Public Works Superintendent shall decide when to begin snow or ice control operations. The criteria for that decision are:
Snow accumulation of 2 inches or more;
Drifting of snow that causes problems for travel;
Icy conditions which seriously affect travel;
Time of snow fall in relationship to heavy use of streets.
Snow & ice control are expensive and involve the use of limited personnel and equipment. Consequently, snowplowing operations will not generally be conducted for snowfall of less that 2 inches… from City of Jasper Snow/ice Maintenance Policy.
Our city crew tries to get out VERY EARLY in the morning in order to have the streets cleared for everyone’s convenience, but we need everyone’s cooperation.
To avoid a violation/ticket (defined in Ordinance No. 83) we suggest that you find off-street parking for your vehicle. Vehicles in violation will be ticketed and subject to towing. You may park in your driveway, on the boulevard, a convenient place on your property, or-with permission-on a neighbor’s property. It is very important to listen to the weatherman. When he is talking about bad weather, please use off-street parking. Once the snow is cleared, you may again park on the street. The only exception to the ordinance would be for those items that it will be impossible to have all the snow removed on Wall St. before businesses are open. When this is the case, the Public Works Department asks that customers, park parallel to the curb rather that diagonal to the curb until all the snow is plowed and removed.
We appreciate your cooperation! Obeying these regulations will not only allow for better snow removal, but save taxpayers dollars. It will make City snow removal a safer and better operation. Let’s give our Public Works Department a chance to do their job, excellent job of snow removal! Everyone will be happier in the long run. *********CITY CODE SECTION 8.09: Subd. 1: It is unlawful for any person to stop, park or leave any vehicle upon any street for a continuous period of twenty-four (24) hours! City Code is all year long!

Brush Site:

Please follow the brush site rules.

Allowable Items:  brush, leaves, tree limbs, grass clippings, and compostable garden items.

Separate your items and place in the brush or compost pile.

DO NOT start a fire.  Burning is allowed by City employees only!

DO NOT leave plastic bags or boxes used to transport items to the brush site.

DO NOT leave trash or garbage at the brush site.

DO NOT leave lumber or burnable building or remodeling materials.  These items need to go to the county dump site.

DO NOT leave metal or other unusable items like bicycles.  These items need to go to the county dump site or be recycled at another location.


Violations put the City at risk of losing the license to operate a brush site/burn site.   Violators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  Fines of up to $100 will be imposed.
