Once the snow emergency route is plowed curb-to-curb can I park back on that street?
No, the actual ordinance is as follows:

7-6-2: Snow Emergency Routes:
Subpart B: Parking Restrictions: When a snowfall of more than two inches (2") occurs, no person shall park or leave parked along the curb parking areas on any of the streets or portions of streets designated as snow emergency routes any vehicle until such time as the street has been cleared of snow back to the curb line and snowfall accumulation has ceased (Ordinance 1518, 12-16-1985).

Please take note of the last portion of the ordinance where it states no parking is allowed until the street has been cleared "and snowfall accumulation has ceased."

During a snow event the plowing of the highways and snow emergency routes begin almost immediately sometimes with less than an inch of snow on the ground. However, ticketing and towing along emergency routes begins once it is determined that we have received 2 inches of snow. Ticketing and towing continues until the snow event has ended. The Street Department plows emergency routes several times during a storm. Storms sometimes spread over 2 and on rare occasions 3 days. On those occasions there should be no parking on emergency snow routes for whatever the length of the storm. Please call the Mitchell Police Division at 605-995-8400 for more information.
