Mayor ends snow emergency

Mayor Linda Gorton has signed an order terminating the Snow Emergency, effective 4 p.m. today.

Gorton declared the Snow Emergency at 6 p.m., Feb. 15, so the city could clear the snow off of major streets. A snow emergency requires citizens to move cars parked on Snow Emergency Routes.

“Thanks to our citizens for working with us so we could clear the snow and ice off our streets,” Gorton said. 

LexPark opened downtown public parking garages to free parking at the beginning of the Snow Emergency. Free parking will continue until 4 a.m., Friday, February 19.
