LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski issued a snow emergency for the city Sunday night. It went into effect at 8 p.m. on Sunday and does not give a time for when the emergency is to be lifted.
Residents have 12 hours to move their vehicles from marked Snow Emergency routes. If people do not move their vehicles by 8 a.m. Monday, it could result in fines and towing.
The city is asking residents and businesses to move cars off non-snow route streets as much as possible.
Mayor Roswarski issued the following statement:
“We have the possibility of experiencing a significant amount of snow over the next 24 hours. Citizens are asked to remove their vehicles from the city streets to assist our snowplowing efforts throughout the community. High winds, blowing snow and bitter temperatures all reduce the effectiveness of salt, requiring crews to make more passes to clear the streets.”
