Snow Emergency Definitions Explained
Understanding a Snow Emergency Declaration
Based on anticipated or actual sustained snowfall a Snow Emergency may be declared by the Mayor of the Village. Such declarations will provide
the start date and time of the Snow Emergency and if possible when the Snow Emergency will end. The period of the Snow Emergency may be reduced
or extended based on actual weather conditions. Snow Emergencies are issued based on three different levels, level 1 being the least severe to level 3
being the most severe. In all cases, Snow Emergencies are to maintain public safety and will only continue as long as necessary in making roadways safe.
Level One Snow Emergency: Roadways are hazardous, and motorists should drive with extreme caution. During a Level One Snow Emergency, motorists
may not park alongside streets or along roadways with signage prohibiting parking during a Snow Emergency. Vehicles may be fined or towed if they are not
removed from village streets.
Level Two Snow Emergency: Driving is discouraged, and residents should call ahead before heading to work. Only necessary travel is recommended
during a Level Two Snow Emergency. Schools and some businesses do not operate during a Level Two Snow Emergency.
Level Three Snow Emergency: All public roadways are closed to the general public. Only authorized officials, public employees, police, medical, and
emergency vehicles should be on the roads. Motorists can be fined or arrested if found driving on public roadways in a non-emergency situation. If a
Level Three Snow Emergency is declared when students are at school or when a public building is open, attempts are made to provide provisions for those people affected.
