SNOW STORM ADVISORY – General Information


#MVReady for Winter Storm

The City of Mount Vernon will declare a SNOW EMERGENCY and institute emergency procedures when snowfall is predicted to accumulate three (3) or more inches. This will allow City personnel to clear roadways and streets.

Parking restrictions go into effect when there is a SNOW EMERGENCY. There is no parking on any street designated as a “SNOW EMERGENCY ROUTE.”

Any vehicles parked on a SNOW EMERGENCY ROUTE during the Snow Emergency will be summonsed and towed. Otherwise, parking restrictions on residential streets will be lifted.

Residents are urged to travel only when necessary during a SNOW EMERGENCY. Your cooperation is needed and much appreciated to keep the public safe and facilitate an orderly removal of snow.
