Snow Information

Remove all vehicles from the street when snowfall is anticipated, even if a snow emergency has NOT been declared (vehicles may be parked in yards during inclement weather). If your vehicle is on the street during a snow emergency, you may receive a Parking Ticket. Please remove snow and ice from sidewalks for the safety of pedestrians and school children. We also ask you move basketball goals off the street and out of the way (especially in cul-de-sacs)

Snow emergencies will be declared on City Newsletter and “City of Fort Mitchell, KY” Facebook page.
