Town of Mount Airy Continues State of Emergency Due to Snow Event

Posted on by Mt. Airy

Mayor Patrick Rockinberg of Mount Airy has announced the continuation of the State of Emergency that went into effect 12:00 noon on Friday, January 22, 2016. In order to progress further with snow removal operations, The State of Emergency will continue until 7:00 A.M. on Saturday, January 30th, 2016, after which time residents may resume parking on the street where there is sufficient space to safely accommodate vehicles.

Therefore, until that time, the Town will not allow vehicles to park on Town streets until such time in order to complete snow removal efforts.

The Town is pleased to report that access to local roadways has been restored throughout the town. Residents are asked to please keep in mind that snow clearing efforts will continue on into next week. As streets are widened back to normal, it can be expected that some snow may accumulate against driveway entrances.

For those residents that live in cul-de-sacs, large piles of snow between driveways are to be expected. This situation is unavoidable due to the accumulation of snow we received during this storm event. While we understand this condition is not optimal, it is not practical for the Town to physically remove this snow from the cul-de-sac areas and transport to a remote location.
Importantly, the Town would like to remind you to clear the sidewalks adjoining your property to ensure the safety of pedestrians in our community. We understand this may be difficult at the street intersections due to the volume of snow that was plowed off the street.

We deeply appreciate your patience and understanding with our snow removal efforts during this historic storm event.

MAYOR STORM UPDATE 11PM 1/25

Posted on by Mt. Airy

In just forty-eight hours after record snowfall, our lives are slowly returning to normal. Before the winter storm fades into a distant memory, I wanted to pause for a moment and extend a big thank you to everyone! As I drove along our streets today, I witnessed citizens helping one another and taking this epic storm in stride. I was moved, though not surprised, to see members of Calvary Methodist Church arriving in force to dig out our seniors. That’s the Mount Airy we love and call home.

Since the snow started falling in our Town, our road crews have worked diligently to move record-setting accumulations of snow from Town roads. Snow removal is taking longer than usual due to the volume of snow and drifts as high as 6 feet in some of our neighborhoods. The Town must rely on heavier equipment to move, load, and haul away snow. Understandably, this takes substantially more time than we are accustomed to with more typical snowfall amounts for our area.

Until we are fully recovered from the storm, we still have some adjustments ahead of us. For Town residents on the Carroll County side, trash collection for Tuesday has been cancelled. Further updates will follow and be posted on our website and social media outlets.

Our public works department, make that – AWESOME public works department, led by Brian Johnson will continue to widen street access over the next couple of days.

Feel free to contact me @ [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns.

Warmest regards,

Patrick Rockinberg
Mayor Town Of Mount Airy
