Weekend weather snow route declaration
Fri, 28 Feb 2014 22:34:01 GMT —
Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore is asking those parking on snow emergency routes to voluntarily comply and not park on those routes effective Saturday, March 1 at 5 p.m. until noon on Monday, March 3.
It will be decided later on Saturday or Sunday if a snow emergency will be declared. If and when a snow emergency is declared it applies to the designated snow routes with blue signage. Vehicles must be moved off these designated routes. Those not moved are subject to being ticketed and/or towed once there are three inches of snowfall.
The city snow policy is put in place to keep all streets passable during snowstorms and within twelve hours after the storm passes so that crews have a chance to plow streets and salt roads as needed.
If the storm amounts to three inches or more, the city may declare a snow emergency. The snow emergency requires all vehicles to be removed from the designated snow routes shown in pink on the Snow Emergency map
. No vehicles will be allowed to park on these designated routes until the snow emergency has been lifted.
