Snow Alert Information 

The City of Harrisburg is issuing a Snow Alert effective 6 pm today (2/22/18) through 12 noon Friday (2/23/18).  Next Snow Alert is issued for 8am Saturday (2/24/18) thru 8am Sunday (2/25/18).

NO PARKING is permitted on City streets during Snow Alerts, vehicles may be ticketed at any time during a Snow Alert. The City will work to keep the Snow Routes open through the duration of the snow event and will plow every street, curb-to-curb once the snow subsides. It is important to remember that Snow Alerts automatically continue if curb-to-curb is not complete and that just because it appears that curb-to-curb is complete in front of your home that it may not be done around the corner and that parking on the street still might inhibit the plows.

It is against City Ordinance to deposit snow on the roadway at any time, even if the plows haven't come by your house yet. Please respect the plow operators and your neighbors by following this ordinance.

We are currently predicted to receive up to 2.9 inches of snow before Friday morning and another 3.7 inches Saturday.

Thank YOU for your patience, stay warm, and stay safe.
