Dear Employers in the City of Harrisburg,

The City of Harrisburg is asking employers not to punish employees who are unable to get to work in the aftermath of the unprecedented snow storm that struck our region this weekend.
City Public Works crews as well as emergency responders need your cooperation as we try to remove more than 30 inches of snow from our streets over the next few days. We are asking residents to restrict their driving, and we are not encouraging people to come into the City for the next few days unless absolutely necessary.
We very much appreciate your cooperation by being lenient with employees who fear having to navigate hazardous road conditions as our region recovers from this historic storm.

Yours truly,

The Honorable Eric Papenfuse
City of Harrisburg
