Snow Emergency in City of Lancaster


A snow emergency will go into effect today at 12 PM at which time City Hall and all City offices will close. Parking Garages will be open to allow residents to move their vehicles in order for crews to clear roadways designated for snow emergency.

Declaration of a Snow Emergency allows the Department of Public Works and the Police Bureau to restore reasonable flow of traffic in the City as quickly and effectively as possible.  Whenever possible, streets will be plowed curb to curb.
