B. Whenever there has been an accumulation of snow of two (2) inches or more, or ice or freezing rain within the City of Greenwood, there shall be no parking on any part of any street within the City until the snow, ice or freezing rain has been cleared to such a point as to permit the movement on the street of emergency vehicles, including public works vehicles, police cars, fire trucks and ambulances.
