Kennett Square Borough Ordinance · 11-56 · Limitation on Parking

SNOW EMERGENCY - The mayor or other official designated by borough council may declare a snow and ice emergency (referred to as a “snow emergency”). A snow emergency is instituted when four inches or more of snow have accumulated, but it also may be instituted based on other weather conditions deemed to require the removal of vehicles from the roads for safe travel. The declaration of a snow emergency may be announced by posting at the borough municipal building; or by radio, newspaper, email, social media sites or other available media. The termination of a snow emergency may be announced in the same manner. After a snow emergency has been declared, no person shall park a motor vehicle or allow that vehicle to remain parked on any portion of a snow emergency route as set forth in section 11-56.1.

WINTER WARNING - A winter warning shall be in effect when roads are covered with freezing rain, snow, sleet, hail, or ice. The mayor or other official designated by borough council may declare the start time for a winter warning in preparation for and in anticipation of those conditions. The declaration of a winter warning may be announced by posting at the borough municipal building; or by radio, newspaper, email, social media sites or other available media. The termination of a winter warning may be announced in the same manner. When a winter warning is in effect, no person shall park a motor vehicle or allow that vehicle to remain parked on any portion of a winter warning route as set forth in section 11-56.2.  (Ord. No. 922, § 1, 10-19-2015; Ord. No. 927, § 1, 4-4-2016)
