Snow emergency to begin Middletown Borough

 

The Press And Journal has been notified by Middletown Mayor James H. Curry III that he has declared a snow emergency in the Borough, effective at 11 a.m. Sat., Feb. 21.

“According to the National Weather Service, a significant snow storm is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, followed by a period of sleet into Sunday.=,” Curry noted in the announcement. “That being said, I will be declaring a snow emergency in the Borough.”

According to the announcement snow emergency restrictions will be “strictly enforced and tickets will issued for any and all vehicles in violation of those restrictions.”

The announcement also noted that during a declared snow emergency, parking restrictions go into effect to facilitate the removal of snow from Borough streets. “During such an emergency, it is unlawful to park on the north side of designated east-west streets or on the east side of designated north-south streets, unless otherwise indicated,” the announcement added.

The declaration also noted that once the snow stops and it has been removed from those parking areas, parking there becomes permissible as long there is no interference with the Borough snow removal crews and no interference with traffic during the remainder of the emergency.

Mayor Curry’s announcement also noted that residents needing an off street place to park can use the lot behind Borough hall.
