6. Snow Emergency Routes

A snow emergency due to accumulated snow of a depth of three (3) inches or more upon the public streets of the Township shall exist when so declared by the Township Manager or his duly authorized representative. The emergency shall cease to exist as a result of the removal of the snow from those streets when so declared by the Township Manager or his duly authorized representative. In the event that a snow emergency is declared between the hours of 10:00 PM and 8:00 AM, then all parking restrictions provided for hereafter shall not become effective until 8:00 AM.

Immediate notice of the existence of a snow emergency and of the end of a snow emergency shall be given to the public by the Township Manager or his duly authorized representative by means of appropriate announcements through available media sources.

The existence of snow emergency routes was established in Ordinance No. 1843 in December of 1978. The snow emergency routes and restrictions are listed in Chapter 145-62. These regulations are as follows:

  1. No person, firm or corporation shall park a motor vehicle or allow a motor vehicle to remain parked on either side of a snow emergency route during a snow emergency.

  2. It shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation to obstruct or impede traffic on any street designated as a snow emergency route during a snow emergency by reason of his/her failure to have the vehicle operated by him/her equipped with snow tires or chains.
