The City Manager, in conjunction with the Director of Public Works, Police Chief, additional Public Safety and other department heads, determine that conditions exist that would warrant a Snow Emergency and reports same to the Mayor. The Snow Emergency shall go into effect four (4) hours after declaration. (City Codified Ordinances, Part 5, Title 3-Traffic Regulations, Article 527.02)
Please note that the City and surrounding municipalities do not always declare snow emergencies at the same time. Check with your local news media or on the city’s website (www.suffolkva.us) to see if the City of Suffolk has called a Snow Emergency.
