"During the evening of Sunday, January 16, through the following Monday, January 17, the region is forecasted to have significant snow accumulations between 8 and 15 inches. Please help us help you. We ask that you do not park your vehicle on roadways during storms and for a period of forty-eight hours following the end of the storm. This allows our plows to remove snow and ice properly, effectively apply salt to the roadways and permits fire and ambulance services to respond to emergencies. In some residential developments, cars parked on the street keep our plows from completing necessary snow removal. Vehicles parked in the roadway can also create dangerous conditions and can cause problems for our neighbors. Additionally, please leave your garbage cans in your driveway and out of the roadway so we can plow the whole street. Thank you for your cooperation.”
