SARATOGA SPRINGS & SARATOGA COUNTY — Snow emergencies have been declared in both Saratoga Springs and all of Saratoga County.

In the city, Public Works Commissioner Anthony “Skip” Scirocco declared a snow emergency starting at 9 a.m. and remaining in effect through 9 a.m. Sunday. During a snow emergency, all vehicles must be moved to a cleared or plowed area every 12 hours. City streets with alternate side parking are not impacted and cars should be moved in accordance with the posted guidelines.

“Snow accumulation is significant and creating difficult travel conditions. Removal will be a multi-day effort. Please exercise caution, avoid unnecessary travel, and be considerate of the DPW workforce that will be working around the clock to clear our city streets and infrastructure,” Scirocco said.

Mayor Meg Kelly said all non-emergency functions of city government are closed, though police, fire, and DPW snow removal operations will continue uninterrupted.

Saratoga County Board of Supervisors Chairman Preston Allen declared a countywide state of emergency due to the snowstorm and closed all county offices. All Saratoga County DMV locations are closed as part of the countywide closure. DMV customers who have an appointment scheduled today in Ballston Spa, Clifton Park or Wilton should reschedule their appointment online at www.SaratogaCountyNY.gov/DMV
