Another potential snowstorm approaches

Mayor Byron Brown urged City of Buffalo residents to follow winter parking and alternate side parking regulations to aid with snow removal and first responder access as a possible snowstorm moves into the region.

He said, “The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning, starting at 10 p.m. tonight, running through 10 a.m. Friday. Significant snowfall is forecast, so I ask Buffalo residents and workers to follow all the posted parking regulations, which will allow our plowing crews to clear streets more efficiently, and help our first responders do their critical work,”

Under the city’s winter parking regulations, no parking is allowed along bus routes from 1:30-7 a.m. every day through April 1.

The 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. alternate side parking rules are posted on all applicable residential streets and are in effect year round. Violators of the parking regulations are subject to ticketing and towing.

Brown Encourages Residents to Use BuffAlert

Brown said, “I encourage residents to sign up for BuffAlert notices to stay informed of the City of Buffalo’s public service announcements. It’s an easy way to have critical information sent to your cell phone and email.”

The free BuffAlert notices cover everything from weather emergency information to reminders on winter parking regulations and reminders on alternate side parking, as well as other important public service announcements.
