Anne Arundel County
County Executive Steve Schuh this morning is urging citizens to help in the snowstorm clean up by shoveling out sidewalks and nearby fire hydrants in their communities.
“We are asking citizens to help their community by shoveling their sidewalks and clearing out snow from around any fire hydrants,” said Schuh. “This will allow school children to safely make their way to bus stops, and our first responders to save much needed time in case of an emergency.”
The Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works is working to plow the remaining neighborhoods and side streets in the county, and is on track to address 95% of these roads by Wednesday evening.
Annapolis Mayor Michael Pantelides announces that the Level 2 Snow Emergency and the State of Emergency in Annapolis have been terminated.
“While our Public Works crews continue to clear our roads, I want to thank our residents for their patience and understanding, as crews continue working 24 hours a day to get Annapolis up and running,” Mayor Pantelides said.
The termination of the Snow Emergency means that Department of Public Work (DPW) crews have sufficiently cleared Annapolis roads to where residents are allowed to park on the street, including on emergency routes.
Residents are welcome to take their cars out of the city’s four garages but the city will not require residents to remove their vehicles until further notice. The garages are all open, so no ticket will be necessary to exit.
The termination of the State of Emergency means that Mayor Pantelides has determined that the conditions warranting the declaration have been substantially decreased and the resources are no longer essential to the city’s recovery efforts.
