Parking along public roads prohibited in Fox Chapel during snow

Fox Chapel residents are reminded not to park along public roads during snow or ice storms.

In anticipation of this weekend’s predicted snow, Fox Chapel officials are reminding residents that street parking is prohibited during inclement weather.

That includes snow and ice storms.

The Pittsburgh region is expected to get 6 to 8 inches of snow Saturday, before turning to a rain/snow mix on Sunday.

Vehicles parked on public roads during a snowstorm are a hazard, borough officials said. They keep the borough’s road crew from effectively doing their job.

Police will be called to tow vehicles parked along public roads.

Manager Gary Koehler said it is also illegal for residents to shovel snow from any driveway, sidewalk or private road onto public roads.

In other news, residents who still have yet to toss their Christmas trees can dispose of them at the bins behind the municipal office.

Vogel Disposal will not collect them as part of the borough’s garbage hauling contract.

Bins at the municipal office, 401 Fox Chapel Road, are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekends.

Ornaments and other trimmings must be removed.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
