PLEASE be reminded that once 3" of snow has accumulated there is no parking on Village streets.

In order to plow & clear the streets effectively & safely they must be free of parked cars, so PLEASE move your vehicles into your driveways or use the 3 public Village lots (Main St & Central Ave, behind the Ravena Post Office & next to the Hair Em Salon).

Cars must remain off the streets for 12 hrs after snow stops falling.
Vehicles will be ticketed & towed if found parked on any Village street.

Also remember that if your property adjoins any public sidewalk, all snow & ice should be removed by you within 24 hours of accumulation (per our Village Code).
This is for your own safety as well as all pedestrians (including emergency personnel such as the fire department).

Thank you for your cooperation!
