Snow Emergency - 2/8/15

Updated Monday, February 9, 2015 8:30 pm

The Snow Emergency will be lifted as of Tuesday, February 10, 2015 at 6:00 am. Please remove all vehicles from snow lots, specifically the schools, as soon as possible.

The Salem Police plan to continue the odd side parking restriction on narrow streets and the no parking either side restriction on certain streets. We will evaluate the need to modify the restrictions once the snow emergency has been lifted. Check our website or regularly for updated parking restrictions.
