Monroeville warns against street parking ahead of weekend snowfall

Monroeville is warning residents to avoid parking in the street ahead of expected snowfall over the weekend.

In an annoucement posted on its Facebook and website, Monroeville said street parking is prohibited in the municipality during a snow event and will write parking tickets to violators.

“Vehicles parked on the street during a snow accumulation incident are a safety hazard to the snow plow operators and the general public,” reads the statement. “On-street parking limits the (municipality’s) ability to provide the effective and efficient service that is our goal.”

The National Weather Service in Moon Township forecasts snow showers Thursday evening through Friday morning and is calling for about 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulation.

As of Thursday around 3 p.m. NWS placed a winter storm watch on portions of southwest and western Pennsylvania from Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon and is calling for 3 to 12 inches of snow and some ice.

The NWS advisory said travel could be “very difficult to impossible” during the storm.

Mike Adams, Monroeville’s public works director, said the municipality has around 4,000 tons of salt at the ready.

“It’s give or take that, somewhere around there. It was a mild December, so we haven’t used much,” Adams said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
