Snow Emergency Parking

The Township has an Ordinance for Storm Emergency Parking which states "Whenever snow has fallen and the accumulation is such that it covers the streets or highways or thoroughfares, an emergency shall exist and no vehicle shall be parked on the streets or highways of Washington Township".  See Ordinance 97-13 for complete snow emergency details.

Please review Ordinance 10-12 - "An Ordinance to Create a New Chapter of the Township Code Regarding Placement of Mailboxes, Basketball Equipment, and Yard Damage by Municipal Equipment During Storm Operations on Township-Owned Rights-of-Way".
