MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. - With Mount Vernon continuing to shovel itself out following last weekend’s snow storm, city officials have announced additional overnight street closures to expedite the efforts of DPW crews.

As the city remains in a state of emergency, new Mayor Richard Thomas is mandating that from midnight to 8 a.m. on Thursday, multiple streets will be closed to allow for the DPW to work overnight to clear snow from roadways in advance of the morning commute.

By order of Thomas and the Commissioner of the DPW, beginning at midnight, no parking will be permitted on Prospect Avenue between Park Avenue and Portugal Place; on 3rd Street between 6th and Union Avenues; and on South 5th Avenue between 1st and 2nd Street.

Any vehicles remaining on the street will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense, “for the safety and welfare of the public and DPW employees.” Standard alternative side parking rules, sanitation pick-up and recycling collection will be in effect the rest of the week.
