MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- With the latest winter storm expected to move into the area early Thursday, Feb. 13, alternate side of the street parking will be in effect for all streets in Mount Vernon.

Alternate side parking allows crews to plow streets to the curb on one side through the duration of the storm. Motorists will be allowed to park on the opposite side of the street once the storm is over. 

Residents are reminded not to blow or throw snow into the street when clearing property or cars and to consider clearing hydrants that may be in front of your property.

Considering how random the enforcement of rules has been, it's kind of unbelievable that Mount Vernon would choose to START enforcing the rules hours before a massive snowstorm.

It's not about whether enforcement is a good idea. It's about communication being a good idea. This town has failed.


I actually agree with this plan. This is why the Snow Emergency Street policy needs to be enforced. They could allow residents who do not have garages and driveways to park in the municipal lots for those few hours. And people need to understand that there is a Motor Vehicle law that requires all vehicles, big or small, remove all the snow off their cars before getting on the road. And dont shovel the snow back into the road !

Sure it's a good plan, but it should have been announced earlier in the week, not a few hours before the storm hits. How many people are going to learn of this on such short notice? And the DPW should have removed the mountains of snow, as well as the smaller mounds of snow, before it all turned to solid ice. Typical of this city.

Activist Bill:

And where are people supposed to park their cars? Mount Vernon did a very poor job during the last few storms, and it won't be any different this time. There are mounds and mountains of solid ice throughout the city. I'd like to see how the geniuses in the city's DPW will maneuver around those.
