Up to 10 inches of snow possible Tuesday, Wednesday

GOSHEN — The National Weather Service has forecast up to 10 inches of snow will fall in the Goshen area Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday. To prepare for the snowfall, Goshen Mayor Allan Kauffman has issued an order putting the city’s emergency snow removal parking system in place.

Kauffman said in his statement Saturday, “Beginning Monday, Goshen will have ‘odd/even’ emergency parking order in effect. Where there is on-street parking, on even number days, park on the side of the street with even numbered addresses. On odd numbered days of the week, park on the side of the street with odd numbered addresses. Where possible, park off the street. If there is a nearby parking lot, use it. The Street Department needs to push snow further back because of forecast for significant snowfall starting Tuesday. If streets aren’t widened, two-way traffic isn’t possible.

“Residents are asked to help spread the word by telling friends and neighbors. Thanks, all, for cooperation.”
