The city of Kitchener has declared a snow event and is asking residents to move their vehicles off city streets.

City officials say any vehicles left on the streets during the plow out risk being ticketed or towed.

The snow event helps city crews clear the streets of built up snow and slush within 24 hours of a storm ending.

The snow event came into effect on Monday at 11:59 p.m. and ended on Tuesday at 3 p.m. City officials said a full plow-out of the city had been completed.

The city says you can phone 519-741-2345 if you suspect your vehicle has been towed.
