Winter Storm - 1/26/15
- Published on 26 January 2015
A major winter storm is forecast to unfold across the Northeast early this week, which eventually could become an all-out blizzard over parts of our area. Snow is now forecast to begin falling tomorrow morning and some estimates are 28-36" in total. So this is not a small storm.
The village's Police, Fire, and DPW and Highway crews are prepared for this potential event. The village will keep everyone posted should there be a need to communicate any issues, including modifications to garbage pick-up schedules.
As the village has distributed in the past, here are important contact information and items to remember; also there are things everyone can do (and not do) which can really help out in storm conditions. We have also provided information on snow emergency routes and procedures, which are likely to be established on Monday.

- Please be cognizant when parking vehicles, to leave enough room to allow emergency vehicles and plows to pass through freely.

- Do not move police barricades, tape, traffic cones. They are put into place to protect you during an emergency.

- Please clear sidewalks of snow as soon as possible. Clearing of sidewalks should not exceed 12 hours after the snow stops falling.
