In anticipation of significant snow amounts, the City of Amsterdam will declare a Snow Emergency effective 6PM tonight, Wednesday, March 12, 2014.

The Snow Emergency requires that all motor vehicles be removed from City of Amsterdam streets by 6PM - Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Vehicles must remain off city streets until the snow emergency is lifted.

Motorist needing parking accommodations can visit the Amsterdam Police Department Facebook page to view a list of city owned parking lots.

The list is also available in the “SNOW” pamphlet that was mailed to city residents in November, 2013.

Additional “SNOW” pamphlets are available for pick up at the Amsterdam Police Department or at the Treasurers Office in Amsterdam City Hall.

A second press release will be sent out to notify the public when the Snow Emergency will be lifted.
