Mayor Segarra Urges Residents to Prepare for Severe Winter Weather Later This Week

(February 11, 2014) With projections forecasting more severe winter weather later this week, Mayor Segarra is encouraging residents to plan ahead of time. 

“This will be our fifth major snow storm of the season” said Mayor Segarra. “I urge residents to make plans to move their cars for the parking ban and take all necessary precautions before the storm hits.”

Residents should take note of the following:

  • Trash collection will continue tomorrow, Wednesday, February 12th. Thursday and Friday collection routes will have a one-day delay.
  • City vehicles will plow to the curb up to eight hours after the storm has passed, and may push snow back into driveways and sidewalks. Residents should take this into account in their sidewalk and driveway snow-clearing plans, and are reminded that it is illegal to shovel snow back into the road.
  • Vehicles must be moved from all city streets prior to the beginning of a snow emergency parking ban, and removed from City and public school parking lots as soon as possible after the parking ban is lifted.

Anyone in need of shelter is urged to call 211. For the duration of any winter storms the following shelters will be open 24 hours:

  • McKinney Shelter: 34 Huyshope Ave, (860) 722-6922
  • Immaculate Conception Shelter: 560 Park St, (860) 724-4823
  • South Park Inn:  75 Main St, (860) 724-0071

Updates on further storm preparations including parking ban information and school closings will be released tomorrow afternoon.
