(BINGHAMTON, N.Y.) — As significant snow accumulations are expected, Mayor Richard C. David and City of Binghamton public safety personnel urge all residents to remove vehicles from City streets starting Tuesday, Feb. 6 at 6 p.m. until Thursday, Feb. 8 at 6 p.m.
“In preparation for a potentially significant snowstorm, the City asks for residents’ support to ensure public works crews are able to clear snow and salt roads as quickly as possible,” said Mayor David. “In addition, this measure will minimize cars getting covered or surrounded in snow as plows pass, with residents having to dig themselves out.”
While the City’s alternate side parking rules remain in effect, this extra measure will help snow plows and emergency crews keep both lanes clear during the impending winter storm. Residents are strongly encouraged to move vehicles off streets and into driveways, public garages or lots at City parks.
The Binghamton Police Department will be aggressively enforcing alternate side parking rules during this snow emergency to ensure plows can access streets and operate safely. Vehicles parked illegally and blocking plow routes will be towed.
Mayor David and City public safety personnel thank all residents in advance for their cooperation.
