Moving Sports Equipment & Parked Cars During a Snow Event

It is that time of year again… with the past two snow events it seems like a good time to remind everyone that your sports equipment (basketball hoops, soccer nets, etc…) and parked cars must be removed from the roadways.

Also, After we announce a snow emergency, we need to keep main roads clear for plows and emergency vehicles. If you’re parked on one of these main roads during a snow emergency, we will ticket and tow your car. We offer free parking during a snow emergency at Benner Hall at 1260 Cherry Street.
