Snow Emergency Parking Ban

In anticipation of an impending storm, a Snow Emergency has been declared in the Borough of Forty Fort to assist with the efficient removal of snow.   The Snow Emergency will be in effect from 11 PM Tuesday, February 6th 2018 until 7 am Thursday February 8th 2018. 

In response to the Snow Emergency, the borough of Forty Fort will enforce an overnight parking ban along the following thoroughfares in the Borough; Wyoming Avenue, Welles Street, River Street (from Rutter Avenue to Wyoming Avenue), Slocum Street, Shoemaker Street, Dennison Street and the entire length of Murray Street in anticipation of the winter storm.

The parking ban will be in effect from 11 p.m. Tuesday evening 2-6-18 until 7 am Thursday morning 2-8-18.  Vehicles not removed from the affected roadways during the parking ban will be subject to ticketing and towing.

After 7 am Thursday morning, all restrictions will be lifted and residents may park as they normally do.

Residents are asked to make every effort to remove vehicles from side streets and utilize their driveways as much as possible.   Residents are also asked to help emergency services personnel by assisting in clearing a three-foot circle around any fire hydrants near their home.

As a significant amount of snow is anticipated, it is vitally important that as many vehicles as possible be kept off of the streets in the Borough.  Neighbors who have spare driveway space are asked to share that space with their neighbors, if possible, in order to get cars off of the streets.

Residents are also reminded that shoveling or blowing snow into the roadway is strictly prohibited.  Residents are also asked to make every effort not to deposit snow onto tree lawns as it is prohibited by ordinance and has the potential to cause roadway passage restrictions.

Questions may be directed to Mayor Andy Tuzinski at 570-760-1255.
