SNOW EMERGENCY LIFTED

SOMERVILLE SNOW EMERGENCY LIFTED AS OF TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12TH AT 8 P.M.; SOMERVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS OPEN WEDNESDAY

Somerville will lift its snow emergency as of 8 p.m., Tuesday, February 12, 2013.   Residents parked in municipal or school lots during the snow emergency will have a two-hour window starting at that time in which to move their vehicles.  Cars still parked in City lots at 10 p.m. may be subject to ticketing and towing. 

Please also note that Somerville Public Schools will be OPEN on Wednesday, February 13th.

 

SNOW EMERGENCY BACK IN EFFECT

SNOW EMERGENCY BACK IN EFFECT, until further notice. SCHOOLS CLOSED THROUGH WEDNESDAY: Due to high snow accumulations and ongoing work to clear public streets and walkways—and the forecast for more potential snow events this week, the City’s snow emergency will REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Residents may continue to park in municipal or school lots until the snow emergency is lifted. Trash and recycling pickup schedules will continue as normal this week. DPW and contracted crews will continue to clear snow around-the-clock over the next week, including removing high snow banks that impair visibility, as well as at bus stops and crosswalks. To ensure the safety of all residents, particularly children, school has been canceled through Wednesday. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work to ensure safety and accessibility throughout the City.
 

SNOW EMERGENCY IN EFFECT UNTIL 6pm TODAY

The snow Emergency will remain in effect until TODAY, Monday Feb. 11 at 6pm, and the parking ban will remain in effect until that time. Vehicles parked in municipal lots will have until 8pm to leave the lots so that City crews may begin cleanup of all school and metered parking lots.

Please remember that residents and businesses MUST shovel the sidewalks in front of their property within 6 hours after the end of a storm or will be subject to... fines. Shoveling snow into the street is not permitted. Please also remember to clear vents in your home and exhaust pipes on cars to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning and fire hazards. Also, if you are able, please assist the Somerville Fire Dept. by clearing paths to fire hydrants in your neighborhood.

We thank you for your cooperation and patience throughout this difficult storm, and appreciate your continued support.
