While we know we are all very good snow drivers and nothing can stop us, this boils down to getting the cars off the streets ASAP so our guys in the plow trucks can keep after the snow once it starts coming down hard.
Despite multiple travel advisories, there were still cars parked all over the village on our streets, making our guys jobs much harder and more dangerous.
We don't doubt for a moment that you are all terrific snow drivers, are handsome/beautiful, charming, and successful, unflappable in the face of a little snow.... but won't someone please think about the plow truck drivers? WHAT ABOUT THE PLOW TRUCK DRIVERS!?!?
Expected Snowfall within the next 24 Hours below. The State of Emergency is to get the cars off the roads so we can plow.
We made the declaration for 3:30, to give people time to receive the notice and move their cars before it was too late.
As for the length of time, the default on these is 30 days. That way if things are not better you don't need to keep re-issuing it, you issue it once, and when things are better you rescind it.
I think it's a great idea! As I am one of the plow drivers that plow the village. That way we can efficiently remove the snow from the streets safely and not worrying about hitting some ones personal vehicle! Thank you!
Thanks homer for being prepared and making sure the roads are safe for our plow truck drivers
It states it's for people to get there cars so they are not parked on the streets. Read the posting all the way thru
I just come thru Homer.Its not that bad.The roads are covered with snow. Use common sense when driving .
Im in cortland and the roads are horrible in the last 30ish minutes they have gotten so bad my friend with four wheel drive doesn't dare drive on them in his truck
I just spoke with Cortland County dispatch - they’re unaware of this.
We got a foot and a half at 1 time during deer season wasn’t state of emergency and with 10 employees and 8 plow truckes ?
Better safe than sorry they’re being cautious for the safety of everyone
I'd there anywhere you really HAVE to go? Stay home be safe!
Be careful out there getting bad
