Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - If a looming storm strikes this weekend, Moorhead officials hope their emergency snow plan goes smoother a second time around.

Council members Mark Altenburg and Heidi Durand held a public forum at MSUM, taking suggestions on how to improve the parking plan during a snow emergency.

Specifically, they want to know how to get the word out to college students.

More than 125 vehicles were towed last week, most of those near the college campuses.

Attendance was down compared to the uproar this story caused, but some suggestions were taken in.

“I was wondering why are you coming when all of the darn cars are there. Why not come between 6 and 8 or after 5 o'clock?

Do streets on day one and avenues on day two because then you don't have to worry about odd and even number houses and north and south.”

Council Member Altenburg says he's making a motion at Monday's meeting to give each person towed last week $54. That's the amount the city made on each tow.
