The city of Cleveland has enacted a snow ban, effective at 10 p.m. Sunday until further notice.The city also will have 20 snow plows working the streets until 11 p.m. Sunday, with 40 more to maintain the streets afterwards.
Both press releases from the city are below.
Significant snowfall can cause streets to become congested and un-passable. Vehicles left parked in the roadway prevent snowplows from clearing streets, which can make driving down these streets impossible. The resultant bottlenecks and gridlock can hamper response by emergency vehicles.
For this reason, citizens are encouraged to avoid parking vehicles on all city streets to allow snow plows sufficient time to remove snow and ice from the roads.
The City of Cleveland issues the following reminder. Watch the weather reports, stay at home if you do not have to travel and check on the elderly, your friends, family, neighbors and your pets to be sure they are safe and warm.To our municipal workers, emergency workers, police officers, firefighters, Emergency Medical Services, and hospital workers, thank you for your service during this difficult and challenging weather.
The City has 20 snow removal crews working today until 11 p.m. and after that there will be 40 crews out to keep pace with the snow concentrating primarily on the emergency routes and they will get to secondary routes as they can.
In the morning before you get on the road to come to work again, check the weather conditions, school closures, and be extra cautious as you come to work or go home, if you are working tonight. Watch out for the snow plows and give them extra room so they can do their jobs in clearing the roads.
