MOUNT VERNON — Final activity for 2012 wrapping up was the report Friday with Mount Vernon Mayor Richard Mavis.
Following Wednesday’s winter storm that dumped several inches of snow on the city, street crews have been busy plowing snow in the streets and have been dealing with cars parked on emergency snow streets, which is in violation of a city ordinance which mandates these streets be cleared of vehicles when snowfall exceeds 3 inches. These streets are clearly marked with highly-visible red and white signs detailing the city’s policy.
“It is a problem,” said Mavis after speaking with the street department foreman. Mavis wishes to remind all city residents not to park on snow emergency streets in cases of heavy snowfall. If cars continue to be parked on these streets and the car owner cannot be contacted, the car will be towed at the owner’s expense.
