Winter Storm Update #5

The National Weather Service has extended the Winter Weather Advisory for this area from its original expiration time of 6:00 p.m. tonight until midnight tonight – at the earliest. That National Weather Service reports that additional snow accumulations of 1-2 inches are likely this evening with an additional 1-3 inches overnight and through tomorrow.

Aurora’s fleet of 34 plow trucks will continue around-the-clock operations. Additional snow removal contractors are collaborating with the City of Aurora to maximize clean-up efforts on primary and residential streets.

In addition, the City of Aurora is actively enforcing its Snow Parking Ordinance and ticketing parked vehicles that are obstructing plowing routes. The Aurora Police Department and Parking Enforcement personnel have been dispatched to areas where plowing crews have reported difficulties completing snow and ice clearing procedures because of parked vehicles.

The City of Aurora is asking for cooperation to help keep everyone safe by:

* Exercising extreme caution IF you must drive during this time.
* Abiding by the Snow Parking Ban and do not park on public streets when there is more than 2 inches of snow. This will provide the necessary opportunity for City of Aurora plows to clear the streets thoroughly.
* Remembering that the City is responsible for over 1,000 miles of roadways. Our goal is to clear all streets within 14 hours after the snow stops falling. Heavier snowfalls often take longer.
* Sharing this information with your family and friends.

Any pertinent updates will be provided on the City’s website at<> and on the City’s Facebook (<>) and Twitter (<>) pages.

We want to have a safe and secure time as we enter into a new year.
