Mayor Declares Snow Emergency Beginning at 11pm

A snow emergency has been declared beginning at 11:00pm this evening, February 12, 2014.  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.  During a “Snow Emergency,” vehicles should be removed from streets that are designated as a snow emergency route. The City is also encouraging those who do not live along a snow emergency route to relocate their vehicles to City Municipal lots during the storm to facilitate clean-up. 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 (www.cityofpoughkeepsie.com).  Please check the website for updates throughout the storm.
All City transit services are canceled for tomorrow, February 13, 2014 until further notice.  Sanitation will continue as scheduled for Thursday.
Residents and business owners must clear the sidewalk in front of their residences and businesses as required by the City ordinance.  There must be compliance of all parking regulations for your street, and snow must not be put into any roadway.  This is a violation of the City of Poughkeepsie Code of Ordinances. Residents must clear all fire hydrants on their properties.
