Jan. 21, 2016 HARRISBURG – The City of Harrisburg is preparing for a possible 12-18 inches of snow beginning Friday night, and residents are advised to pay close attention to weather updates this weekend.

“Our Public Works crews are ready, and we are closely monitoring weather forecasts that indicate our City could be hit with a major snow storm,” said Mayor Eric Papenfuse. “Residents should be assured that the City is well prepared to deal with any weather situation.”

Harrisburg City residents are being allowed to park free in the Locust Street Garage from 7 p.m. Friday  through 6 a.m. Monday in an effort to get cars off the streets to make way for Public Works crews, if they are needed.

In addition, the Public Works Department is informing residents that there will be no trash collection on Saturday.  Residents are asked to put out all trash on Friday, even if the collection day is Saturday.

Residents should obey all street signs to ensure Public Works crews can keep streets plowed and can remove snow as quickly as possible. In the event of a snow emergency, the City will have 18 trucks on the street, with a priority of clearing snow from the major arteries and from secondary streets.
