A snow emergency has been declared beginning at 11:00pm this evening, February 8, 2013. Mayor John C. Tkazyik would like to take the opportunity to remind City residents and visitors about the regulations that are put into effect when a “Snow Emergency” is declared.
Snow Emergency Regulations
During a “Snow Emergency,” vehicles should be removed from streets that are designated as a snow emergency route. Vehicles that are legally registered, inspected, and insured may be parked in a City of Poughkeepsie municipal parking lot that is open to the public, free of charge, during a declared snow emergency. Vehicles that are parked on snow emergency routes during a declared snow emergency are subject to ticketing, towing, or impounding at the vehicle owner’s expense. If your vehicle is towed, an impound fee must be paid prior to it being released. Instructions for release can be obtained by calling the City of Poughkeepsie Police Department at (845) 451-4000. Vehicles should not be parked on snow emergency routes until the snow emergency is cancelled. Snow emergency routes can be found on the City’s website (see Snow Information section below). Please check the website for updates throughout the storm.
Bus Service Cancelled
All City transit services are cancelled as of 5pm today, February 8th until further notice. Bus service is expected to resume on Monday, February 11, 2013. Continue reading Snow Emergency Declared, Begins 2/8/13 at 11:00pm
