New Hampton Residents Reactions Prompt Snow Ordinance Discussion

New Hampton, Iowa – A flood of social media comments related to New Hampton’s snow ordinance and parking tickets led to the New Hampton City Council to hear the public on Monday, December 3rd.  

Mayor Deb Larsen said she’s disappointed in citizen turnout at the meeting.


The New Hampton City Council amended a the city ordinance allowing violators to pay their parking tickets within five days of the violation versus two.  

The ordinance will most likely take effect next year.  Changing city ordinances take three readings to approve and then publish.
