STAMFORD, Conn. — Mayor Michael Pavia declared a snow emergency beginning at 5 p.m., Thursday, and it will remain in effect until further notice, a news release said.
“When a Snow Emergency is in effect, it is necessary to ban on-street parking on the designated Snow Routes so that snow removal operations can better clear the roadways. Snow removal is significantly more difficult when parked cars prevent snow plows from clearing from curb to curb,” Pavia said in the release.
The city has released the following information about the snow emergency:
- Parking is prohibited on all designated Snow Emergency Routes throughout the city.
- Snow Emergency Routes are posted with signs, and can be found here .
- All offending vehicles will be ticketed and towed during the Snow Emergency.
- Municipal Parking Garages at Bedford Street, Summer Street and Bell Street will be open 24 hours a day, at no cost, until the Snow Emergency is lifted.
- Garbage/Recycling Collection scheduled for Friday, will begin at 1:00 AM. Residents should place collection containers at the curb Thursday night.
- All Recycling Centers will be closed on Friday.
- The Transfer Station will remain open as scheduled.
- More information can be found on the city’s website or by calling the Citizen’s Service Center, 203-977-4140.
