Columbia residents who park on main roads during the winter may soon need to find somewhere else to park. In an attempt to improve snow removal efforts during inclement winter weather, members of the Columbia City Council are considering a proposal to designate more streets as priority snow routes. If the forecast indicates 2 or more inches of snow, the city would enact emergency tow zones on the streets, allowing crews to clear snow more quickly.
