Per Section 11-10 of the Gillette City Code, City Administrator Carter Napier is declaring a Snow Emergency with Emergency Snow Route parking prohibitions effective Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 10 a.m.
Based on weather forecasts predicting snowfall accumulation of more than 4″ for Winter Storm Gandalf, this Snow Emergency shall place a parking prohibition on Emergency Snow Routes as defined in the City Code.
Those routes include:
- 6th Street from Burma Road to 4-J Road.
- 4th Street from 4-J Road to Gurley Avenue.
- Gurley Avenue from 12th Street to 4th Street.
- 4-J Road from 2nd Street to 8th Street.
- Brooks – 2nd Street to Warlow.
- 9th – Butler Spaeth to U. S. 59.
- Foothills Blvd. – U.S. 14-16 to Echeta Road.
- 7th Street – U.S. 59 to 4-J Road
Owners of vehicles parked along the Emergency Snow Routes need to remove the vehicles within four hours of this declaration and keep the vehicles from being parked on these routes until the snow emergency has ended. Emergency Snow Routes are marked with signs.
The City of Gillette will make a good effort to contact vehicle owners on these routes to remove the vehicles, but if the owner cannot be contacted the vehicle will be towed at the owner’s expense. This declaration is only for parking prohibitions on Emergency Snow Routes. If Winter Storm Gandalf increases in severity, Administrator Napier may upgrade to a higher Snow Emergency.
The City of Gillette will announce the end of the snow emergency and parking prohibitions once the conditions have subsided and the Emergency Snow Routes are cleared of snow.
