What is a Snow Emergency?

When an accumulation of 4 inches or greater is forecast or actual snowfall is 4 inches or greater, the Village Administrator may issue a Snow Emergency. This restricts parking on all Village streets, with brief parking for the loading or unloading of persons or property. The Snow Emergency will be broadcast over radio and television, on our website and via email. The Snow Emergency will remain in affect for up to 24 hours after the snowfall has ended. It is the driver’s responsibility to be aware of this ordinance and to remove vehicles from Village streets when snowfall is 4 inches or greater.

Snow Plowing and Salting Info: During a winter storm, primary roads will be plowed and salted as needed to ensure the safe passage of emergency vehicles and traffic. Secondary roads will be plowed when snow exceeds 2 inches . Intersections and stop pads will be salted.

When the snowfall has ended, Village crews will make every effort to plow and salt all streets. If your street has not been plowed after 24 hours of a snowfall, please contact us. Each snowfall is different and road conditions will be monitored to determine the best course of action.

Remember, Waterville and Providence Streets are designated as “Snow Emergency Streets” when snowfall exceeds 2 inches. This allows them to be plowed to ensure safe passage of vehicular traffic. Vehicles parked on these streets are subject to towing at the owner’s expense and /or a traffic citation may be issued.
