Mayor Jim Newberry declared a Stage One Snow Emergency, effective 6 p.m. Monday, February 15.
The Stage One Snow Emergency requires motorists to move vehicles parked on designated snow emergency routes. The affected roadways are marked with “Snow Emergency Route” street signs.
“Snow has started to accumulate on the sides of our roads, and more snow is expected tonight,” Newberry said. “We need to be able to plow snow routes and that requires that parked vehicles be moved.”
If vehicles are not moved by 10 p.m. tonight, they may be towed. Vehicle owners may get information on how to retrieve their towed vehicles by calling the Police Reports Desk at 258-3563.
The snow emergency order remains in effect until it is lifted by the Mayor.
City and state crews began snow removal efforts in the early morning hours today and have continued those efforts throughout the day. Those crews are currently putting salt on the priority streets and roads. Salting will continue through the night and plowing will take place as needed on priority streets and roads.
