A snow emergency may be declared by the Commissioner of Public Works (in consultation with the Mayor) to assist in snow clearing efforts. This is normally done during heavy snowfalls or when snow combines with winds that produce blizzard conditions. Such emergency is declared to continue for a period of 72 hours or until such earlier time as snow plowing operations have been declared completed by the Commissioner of Public Works.
During a Snow Emergency, these parking restrictions are in effect:
Winter Parking Regulations - click here for a list of winter parking regulations
To avoid this charge, contact the DPW Call Center at 286-CITY (2489) to request the City remove the extra garbage carts from your property. There is no extra charge for more than one recycling cart.
Construction Related Material Charge. There is a charge for all City residents bringing construction related material into the self help stations. This includes roofing material, brick, stones, concrete, lumber, drywall, paneling and other construction material.
The charge is $15 for up to 8 cubic yards, and $30 for 8-16 cubic yards. (16 cubic yard maximum.) No contractor vehicles allowed.
City crews will only pick up one (1) cubic yard of extra material placed out for pickup on your designated collection day. This is about the size of an easy chair. Call 286-CITY (2489) to request pickup of larger piles for a fee. See the self help page for more information
