MIDDLETOWN, PA (WPMT)   Middletown Mayor James H. Curry III has declared a snow emergency in the Borough, effective at 11 a.m. Saturday.

“According to the National Weather Service, a significant snow storm is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, followed by a period of sleet into Sunday. That being said, I will be declaring a snow emergency in the Borough,” said Curry.

Snow Emergency restrictions will be strictly enforced and tickets will issued for any and all vehicles in violation of those restrictions.

During a declared snow emergency, parking restrictions go into effect to facilitate the removal of snow from Borough streets. During such an emergency, it is unlawful to park on the north side of designated east-west streets or on the east side of designated north-south streets, unless otherwise indicated.

Once the snow stops and it has been removed from those parking areas, parking there becomes permissible as long there is no interference with the Borough snow removal crews and no interference with traffic during the remainder of the emergency.

Residents needing an off street place to park can use the lot behind Borough Hall.

A complete list of designated snow emergency route streets and parking restrictions is available on the Borough’s Web site at http://www.middletownborough.com/snowemergency.php.
