City of Dover declares Emergency Parking Ban for Friday night
posted on: 2/16/2017
The City of Dover has declared an Emergency Parking Ban for a portion of the downtown Friday evening. This emergency ban is in addition to the citywide winter parking ban, which begins at 1 a.m. each day.
The Emergency Parking Ban will begin at 9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 17, and conclude at 6 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18, for Central Avenue, from Silver Street to Washington Street; and Washington Street, from Fayette Street to Central Avenue.
Vehicles parked in these two locations after 9 p.m. on Friday will be towed at the vehicle owner’s expense. All streets adjacent to these locations will be available until 1 a.m. on Saturday, when the Citywide Winter Parking Ban takes effect.
The ban will allow Community Services crews to remove snow from downtown streets and sidewalks.
Starting at 1 a.m. on Saturday morning, crews will begin work on Central Avenue, from the railroad tracks south to Washington Street, Main Street and Washington Street, from Central Avenue to Main Street and First Street.
Dover Fire and Rescue urges property owners to monitor roofs for excessive snow
posted on: 2/15/2017
After significant snowfall in Dover earlier this week, and with wet snow in the forecast today, Dover Fire Chief Eric Hagman reminds residents to monitor their roofs for excessive snow, and clear snow if necessary. Roofs with heavy snow can be at risk of collapsing.
"The snow expected today and into tomorrow will be heavier than what we've seen this week," Hagman said. "Because the snow may also be accompanied by some rain, roofs may be at greater risk as the weight of accumulated snow and ice increases."
Hagman recommends clearing excessive snow from roofs. For those not able or uncomfortable removing snow, Hagman suggests consulting with a roofing company or properly insured contractor.
