Snow Emergency Routes

Streets that are considered vital to maintain emergency traffic to and from the borough are designated as "Snow Emergency Routes".

Residents who live along these streets should be aware of this and, during snowstorms, stay tuned to local radio stations for instructions. During a "snow emergency" all vehicles parked along the snow emergency routes must be moved until the "snow emergency" is lifted. Any vehicles left parked on a snow emergency route will be ticketed and towed at the owner's expense.

Residents are reminded to listen to local radio stations (WEEU, Y-102, WRAW, WIOV), or tune into the local TV station (Channel 69), or check this website.
