ONEONTA – Due to “the extremely large amount of snow” on city streets, Mayor Gary Herzig announced this afternoon that on-street parking it banned “until further notice.”
City parking lots and the parking deck regulations will be suspended during this period, to allow car owners to park there 24 hours a day.
“Today, city crews worked to make sure that our steepest hills are open with full vehicle access. Our priority for the coming days is to address the most significant threats to public safety, which include making intersections safe for vehicles and pedestrians.”
He recognized the inconvenience, but said public safety is “our top priority.”
