Mayor Pedro Segarra’s office said the city already has preparations underway for Thursday’s snowstorm and is encouraging residents to plan ahead, including making sure they move their cars in the event of a parking ban.
According to the city:
- Trash collection will continue on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday collection routes will have a one-day delay.
- City vehicles will plow to the curb up to eight hours after the storm has passed, and may push snow back into driveways and sidewalks. Residents should take this into account in their sidewalk and driveway snow-clearing plans, and are reminded that it is illegal to shovel snow back into the road.
- Vehicles must be moved from all city streets prior to the beginning of a snow emergency parking ban, and removed from City and public school parking lots as soon as possible after the parking ban is lifted.
- In addition to Hartford schools, the following parking lots are available for FREE: http://www.hartford.gov/dpw/street-services/snow-emergency-parking-ban-info
During the snowstorm city shelters will be open 24 hours and anybody who needs shelter is asked to call 211.
