Winter Storm Preparations – Mayor Declaration of Snow Emergency

February 8, 2017

Hello – This is Mayor Bob Weitzner with a message to all residents and businesses in the Village of Port Washington North with an important Winter Storm preparation notice.

The Weather Service is warning of a snow event beginning later tonight into tomorrow. The prediction is for accumulation of snow between 8” and 12”. The village is working with our public works department and snow removal contractors to ensure that we keep our village safe. Roads must be clear for plowing and accessible for emergency vehicles.

In anticipation of the snowfall forecast exceeding 3” I am declaring a snow emergency beginning at 10pm tonight. During the snow emergency, all parking on the Village streets is prohibited until the declaration is lifted.

The snow emergency parking restriction is not applicable to the following streets: Mill Pond Road, east side of Waterview Drive, and Soundview Drive only between the cross streets of Dock Lane and Waterview Drive. More information can be found on the village’s website by clicking the following link: Snow Emergency Parking Law.

A few reminders:

  • When shoveling do not put snow in the streets. It is dangerous, illegal, and requires re-plowing.
  •  After the snow, property owners are required to clear walks for children, walkers and Post Office deliverers.
  • If you are or will be away please make arrangements with a neighbor or contractor to clear snow.
  •  Do not forget to clear Fire Hydrants and School Bus Stops near your home.

Thank you and be safe.

Mayor Bob Weitzner (
