Mayor Bernero has issued a modified snow emergency declaration that amends several key provisions of his original order. The modified declaration does the following:
Lifts the ban on non-essential travel, effective at midnight tonight. Residents are asked to continue to exercise extreme caution when driving on city streets. High winds will continue to cause blowing and drifting snow that can reduce visibility and create hazardous driving conditions.
On-street parking will continue to be prohibited on streets that remain unplowed. Parking is permitted on plowed streets, effective immediately. The city’s customary prohibition on on-street parking on all city streets from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. remains in effect.
All city government offices and functions will resume operations during normal business hours starting tomorrow, Tuesday, January 7.
City sponsored events and meetings will resume according to their normal schedules beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, January 7.
All other provisions of the mayor’s snow emergency declaration remain in effect until further notice.
