Weekend snow play is a problem once again for people in and around Flagstaff, especially law enforcement. Coconino County Sheriff’s officials say over the last two weekends combined, in combination with the holiday season, they have experienced significant number of calls for service regarding snow play activities in relation to traffic issues. Over the New Year’s Day weekend, sheriff’s deputies responded to over 80 snow play related calls for service. The calls spanned the areas of Highway 180 corridor neighborhoods, Bellemont, Kachina Village, Munds Park, Mountainaire, Baderville, Ft. Tuthill, Parks, Sherwood Forest Estates and Oak Hill snow play area. Over the weekend deputies gave out around 93 citations and towed five vehicles. The citations were issued for illegal parking, to include several warnings given to vehicle owners. While on calls, deputies noted several public safety issues that were directly caused by overcrowding, illegally parked vehicles and unsafe parked vehicles. These issues are challenging for law enforcement due to staffing issues.
