A snow update from Franklin Alderman Steve Olson

Dear Neighbors and Friends:

Well, it appears that the “big dump” is on its way.

City Engineer John Bennett has continually predicted a 28” snowfall and he may get his wish.

Be assured that the City has plans for this event and will tackle the storm effectively but we need some help from you.

I’m certain that the Mayor will impose a snow emergency which will ban ALL parking on city streets.  I’ve been told that the Police Department will ticket vehicles parked on city streets and may have them towed.  So be forewarned.

Remember that city ordinance prohibits putting snow on city streets (especially after the plows come through).  Again, I’ve been told that this ordinance will be enforced, so, keep the snow off the streets after the plows come through.

And the Fire Department reminds you to shovel out the fire hydrant near your house.  Keeping the hydrant clear will save precious minutes should the need unfortunately come up.

And once the storm has passed and the clean-up done, don’t forget to help out your mail carrier by clearing about 15’ near your mail box so they can deliver your mail.

I apologize for the nagging tone, but it’s always better to be forewarned!

Also, don’t forget that there’s a primary election coming up on February 12.  Primary election for State Supreme Court and Milwaukee County Executive are headliners for this election and they need your participation!

Thanks, and don’t forget to help your neighbors, especially the elderly and less abled.

As always, feel free to pass this on to your friends and neighbors.
