Snow Emergency Declaration

In anticipation of the upcoming snow storm Northumberland Borough has declared a snow emergency. In order to facilitate the movement of traffic and to combat the hazards of excessive snow and tce on the streets, alleys and highways of the Borough, the President of Council has declared a snow emergency will commence at 00:01 hours of 14 March 2017.

Per Borough Ordinance 58-32, you must remove your vehicle from the street during a snowstorm after a state of emergency has been declared in order to facilitate safe and effective snow plowing.

Please be considerate and do not shovel or plow the snow from your driveway or sidewalk into the street.

Sidewalk shoveling should be completed within 24 hours after the snow has stopped.

Place trash cans and recycling containers so as not to interfere with snow plows or salt trucks. The Borough will not replace them.


Remove snow to keep open the storm water inlet near your property- keeping it open will prevent flooding and icing conditions on the street and surrounding properties.

This declared emergency will be in effect until rescinded by the proper Borough Officials.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
