FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Snow Emergency, November 26th and 27th
Weather Forecast continues to be ominous.
HANOVER TOWNSHIP - NORTHAMPTON COUNTY, November 25, 2014
Hanover Township announces a Snow Emergency effective at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 26, 2014 through 11:59 a.m. on Thursday, November 27, 2014.
Hanover Township has found it necessary to declare a "Snow Emergency" due to the potential for a significant snow event starting Wednesday morning into Thursday morning.
Parking on all Township streets is prohibited and vehicles may be ticketed ($50.00 fine.) Section 172-29 of the Codified Ordinance reads, "Whenever a snow emergency has been declared it shall be unlawful for any vehicle to be abandoned or parked on anyt public highway/street".
Again, the Township has declared a Snow Emergency as a result of an impending storm with significant accumulation forecasted. The combination of snow and leaves presents a danger to the Township's snow operations.
Tickets can be issued once the Snow Emergency goes into effect and in some instances prior to the snow actually starting to fall or snow plowing operations commencing.
