Snow Emergency Declared

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BETHLEHEM, PENNSYLVANIA

February 12, 2014

Effective 7:00PM February 12, 2014, the City of Bethlehem is declaring a snow emergency. Snow emergency routes have restricted parking on one side of the street that alternates each day. All vehicles parking on snow emergency routes must obey the posted snow emergency signs for that street or their vehicle will be ticketed and the vehicle will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Effective at 4pm, the Bethlehem Parking Authority garages are available for free parking for the duration of the snow emergency.

The more people that voluntarily comply, the fewer vehicles will need to be towed in the bone-chilling cold. Please share this information with friends and neighbors that might not follow social media. Together we can save citizens tow fees and tow operators from frostbite.
