Mayor Joseph G. Pignoli of West Conshohocken issued a snow emergency for this weekend. He also outlined the new snow emergency plan for West Conshohocken. Below is the message with all the details:
A MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR:
January 20, 2016
As you may know the following streets are deemed Snow Emergency Routes in the Borough of West Conshohocken:
Josephine Avenue New Dehaven Street
Bullock Avenue (BOTH SIDES) Spring Garden Street
With the impending inclement weather happening this Friday into Saturday and/or possibly Sunday, the Borough will be under a snow emergency from 08:00 AM on Friday, January 22nd until 08:00 AM on Monday, January 25th, if the current forecast doesn’t change.
The Borough will implement a new plan that HAS NOT been used in the past. We are advising that all vehicles MUST be parked and stay parked on the EVEN side of the roadway until the snow emergency is over.
Once Public Works has cleaned your street please be courteous and DO NOT PUSH snow back out onto the street as this will cause re-icing conditions. Please be advised that borough ordinance Chapter 99, Article I. Snow, Grass and Dirt Removal, section C, #3 states “It Shall be unlawful to throw, shovel or plow snow into or upon any roads and streets within the Borough with the intent of allowing such snow to remain on such roads and streets” and is subject to a fine up to $1,000. You may also be asked to move your vehicle so that the Streets Department can maintain a clear roadway for Emergency vehicles.
Please watch the local news and our Facebook page for updates as the storm approaches. If your vehicle(s) are not moved you will incur the possibility of a fine as well as having your vehicle being towed.
The Borough wishes to make the snow removal process easy, uncomplicated and safe as possible and would very much appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation and especially your understanding as we try to make this process as painless as possible for all.
Mayor Joseph G. Pignoli
