Should weather cause its postponement, trash will be collected Saturday, February 11, conditions permitting. For those whose normal trash collection day of the week is Friday, trash collection is expected to proceed February 10 as scheduled. A path must be cleared to outdoor trash receptacles, or the garbage will not be able to be collected.

Overnight on-street parking and parking in the DeForest Avenue park and shop lots will be restricted during the storm and during clean-up operations. Vehicles can be parked in the Broad Street and Springfield Avenue Tier garages during the storm, but must be removed by 8 a.m. on February 10 to accommodate employee and commuter parking.

Residents are advised to remain at home and avoid driving  if possible, to allow crews the opportunity to clear the roads.
