Ephrata Reviews Snow Removal Rules

If you interfere with the operation of snow plows in Ephrata you could be facing up to a $135 fine. That’s one of several winter street maintenance ordinances reviewed at the City Council’s meeting this week. Lawmakers also reviewed the city’s snow removal policy which prioritizes main arterials, move to hills and second arterials then begin to open Basin Street and clear the berm that the Washington State Department of Transportation creates. They will then move to the schools and residentials.
