The city declared a snow emergency effective at noon Tuesday, scheduled to end at noon Wednesday.
That means two things:
1. If you live on one of the city's snow emergency routes -- Easton has them in all four neighborhoods -- you need to move your car.
2. Once you move it, you can keep your car in the city's parking garage, for free, until 2 p.m. Wednesday.
You can find a copy of the emergency routes on the city website.
The borough of West Easton also declared a snow emergency, from 3 p.m. Tuesday until 1 p.m. Wednesday. All residents along the snow emergency route must move their vehicles.Events were cancelled around the city Tuesday, including a public hearing on a proposed charter school for the Easton Area School District. Lafayette College cancelled classes in the afternoon.
The Boys & Girls Club of Easton cancelled all after school activity, while Easotn City Council cancelled its committee meetings.
The storm caused a few businesses—Two Rivers Brewing, Cosmic Cup and Mesa—to close their doors, with promises to reopen Wednesday.
Easton schools were open part of the day Tuesday, with students attending class for a few hours in the morning before returning home.
