In anticipation of another round of winter weather, the Town of Georgetown has activated its snow emergency plan.
Parking restrictions apply to designated snow emergency routes, making it easier and more effective for equipment to clear snow from the streets.
The designated snow emergency routes are:
East Market Street
West Market Street
North Bedford Street
South Bedford Street
East Pine Street
West Pine Street
North Race Street
South Race Street
North Front Street
South Front Street
East Laurel Street – North Bedford Street to North Race Street
West Laurel Street – North Bedford Street to North Front Street
Edward Street – North Bedford Street to North Front Street
West North Street – North Bedford Street to DuPont Highway (Route 113)
Vehicles parked along these streets may be subject to towing if not removed by the owner. Residents are asked to avoid traveling during adverse weather conditions. Those who must travel are asked to use caution around snow removal equipment and personnel.
Town ordinance also states that the sidewalks be cleared within eight hours after a snowfall. Residents with a fire hydrant near their property are asked to take an extra minute or two to ensure that it is cleared and visible.
Residents with questions about the snow emergency can log on to www.georgetowndel.com for more information, or call 302-856-7391.
