What does it mean if a Snow Emergency is declared?

With the potential for hazardous winter weather this week, we wanted to take a moment and discuss the difference between Snow Emergency Levels issued by the Lucas County Sheriff’s Office and a Village Snow Emergency issued by the Whitehouse Village Administrator.
The advisory/emergency levels by the Sheriff’s Dept. deal with vehicular travel and are broken down into three categories. Please refer to the below graphic for details on each.
A snow emergency issued by the Whitehouse Village Administrator pertains to vehicle parking on village streets.
At anytime, should snowfall reach two inches or greater, no vehicular parking of any type shall be permitted on the designated emergency snow removal zones of Providence Street or Waterville Street. Failure to move a vehicle will result in the vehicle being towed at the owner’s expense.
Should snowfall totals warrant a village snow emergency to be declared, parking will be prohibited on ALL village streets. Failure to move a vehicle will result in the vehicle being towed at the owner’s expense.
If a village snow emergency is declared, it will be broadcasted on television, by email and on our social media channels.
