Emergency Information

3:00pm - February 2, 2015 

Mayor Bernero today modified his snow emergency declaration to permit on-street parking in areas of the city where snow clearing operations are completed. However, vehicles that have remained on the street since the snow storm ended will continue to be subject to ticketing and towing, regardless of whether or not the street has been cleared of snow. In addition, the city’s year-round prohibition on street parking between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. remains in force. This modification to the mayor’s emergency order takes effect at 6 a.m. tomorrow, February 3, 2015.
