Mayor Flowers Declares Snow Emergency

Mayor Yvonne Flowers has declared a snow emergency effective 3 p.m. Saturday, January 6, requiring vehicles to be removed from designated routes. By that time, residents must find alternative off-street parking or to park their vehicles in public parking lots. 

Vehicles may be parked in a City of Poughkeepsie municipal parking lot that is open to the public, free of charge, during the declared emergency.  

Vehicles parked on snow emergency routes during a declared 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. Also, any outstanding parking tickets will need to be paid. Instructions for release can be obtained by calling the City of Poughkeepsie Police Department at (845) 451-4000, which also can be used for all non-emergency phone calls. Residents are advised to call 911 in case of emergency. 

The mayor said sanitation services are also being temporarily suspended. 

The mayor also reminded residents to keep fire hydrants in front of their homes clear and accessible in case of emergency. Clearing the snow around the hydrant and shoveling a path to it from the street will give the Fire Department the vital access it needs in emergencies. City officials point out that under the city codes, there is a responsibility of the owner/lessee of property fronting a hydrant to maintain the area clear around the hydrant. Failure to clear and keep clear a hydrant may result in a $100 fine or more. 

Here is a list of the city’s Designated Snow Emergency Routes:

•           Mill Street from Civic Center Plaza to Dongan Square Park

•           Academy Street from Main Street to North-South Arterial Highway
