A SNOW EMERGENCY has been DECLARED by the Superintendent of Public Works.  The declaration will take  effect beginning 2:00 p.m. (TODAY), Wednesday, 11/26/14 and remain in effect for 48 hours unless otherwise posted. 


Significant amounts of snow are forecast, falling at a  rate of 1” to 3” per hour and heaviest during the afternoon on Wednesday.


Street parking is prohibited during a snow emergency.  Considerations will be given in business areas during usual business hours.  City owned parking lots will be open and plowed after the snow has ended and streets are safe and passable. Vehicles should be removed from lots once street parking is available so that lots may be cleared effectively. 


Additional off street parking in the Rondout Area will be available at a designated lot at the end of Dock Street.
