Parking restrictions cause confusion
BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - The snow emergency ordinance that went into effect on Dec. 5 needs clarification, said Garnet Marsh, town recorder, at the Bath Town Council meeting on Monday.
The parking restriction is in effect "only until the snow is plowed," said Marsh.
If a snow emergency exists, which is an accumulation of 4 inches or more of snow, parking restrictions will go into effect so the snow can be removed by the town. "It's a temporary situation," she said.
During a snow emergency and until the streets are plowed, parking will be banned on the south side of all east-west streets, and the east side of all north-south streets from Williams Street to Johnson's Mill Road.
Fairfax Street and Washington Street, which is U.S. 522, are snow emergency routes, and the fine for parking on these streets during a snow emergency is $75, Councilwoman Nancy Harvey said previously.
