HARTFORD — Facing about almost one-foot of snow in some parts of central Connecticut, Hartford officials on Saturday issued a level-two parking ban for the entire city.
Depending on the circumstances, the parking ban may be extended beyong Dec. 29 and Dec. 30, city officials aid.
A LEVEL 2 ban parking means that all parking on city streets is banned. And vehicles parked on a city street are subject to tag and tow.
City residents may park their cars, during this parking ban, in any Board of Education, Public School parking lot. You are requested to park in a group away from the school building. Motorist parking in public school lots are responsible for the removal of their vehicle at the termination of the parking ban.
This is necessary in order to clear the school lots, officials said.
Property owners and occupants: please be reminded to shovel the sidewalk and walkways— including curb cuts— for pedestrian safety. Please do not shovel or plow the snow back into the street from your driveway or sidewalk.
According to the latest weather forecast Saturday evening, snow will be heavy at times with almost an inch of snow fall per hour. Steady snows are possible through midnight before they begin to wind down after midnight. A flurry or light snow shower cannot be ruled out overnight and through tomorrow morning. Expect storm totals to range from up to 8 inches and watch out for refreeze overnight in areas that stop snowing as lows will drop into the 20’s tonight.
Total Snow Accumulation: 4-8 inches.
